Tom Brokaw, one of the most respected and trusted figures in U.S. broadcast journalism—best known for his more than 20-year tenure as managing editor and sole anchor of NBC Nightly News—joins us for an in-depth conversation on his prolific life and career delivering the news to millions of Americans. From his early years moving to Atlanta, GA, to report on the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King; to his ascent to NBC White House Correspondent amid the chaos of the Watergate Scandal; to his award-winning interview with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and coverage of the fall of the Berlin Wall; to later becoming the first anchor to conduct a one-on-one interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin; and to his harrowing live reporting during the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Brokaw’s career has covered history and made history in equal measure.
Tom Brokaw, currently an NBC News Special Correspondent, has won countless honors during his prolific career, including the Emmy Award for Lifetime Achievement. David M. Rubenstein (moderator), an American philanthropist, is a Co-Founder and Co-CEO of The Carlyle Group.
