Broadcast News legend Tom Brokaw has announced that he will be retiring from broadcast news after a 55 year career at NBC news.

Brokaw, who is 80 years old, has also served as the chief anchor of NBC Nightly News for 22 years.

As Fox News reports:

Brokaw, 80, spent his entire journalism career with NBC News. He covered everything from the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan’s first run for public office and moved from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. in 1973 to serve as the network’s White House correspondent during the Watergate scandal.

He eventually left the White house to co-host “Today” before landing the anchor role at “NBC Nightly News” in 1983, a role he would keep for 22 years.

Many prominent journalists took to Twitter to pay tribute to Brokaw upon hearing he would walk away from NBC News. MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki even unearthed video from his first day on the job at “NBC Nightly News.”

Don’t worry, I give it 6 months or less before Harris and her handlers will take care of it one way or the other. I really wonder if that inferior liberal knew what he signed up for when he got in bed with a hard core leftist.

I think you’re overdoing it, DianeLynn. Harris should be very pleased with how Biden has been behaving. In fact, it’s likely that Harris has been the backseat driver of the ticket since as soon as it was formed. It would be hard to imagine Harris being much more radical with executive orders, etc. than Biden has been already.

He will soon. Harris was the real presidential candidate selected by the left.

But that will give us Kamala. That’s why he chose her. She is a defense against impeachment and the 25th.
