NBCUniversal Honors Tom Brokaw with “Brokaw News Center”

NBCUniversal today announced that it has named its brand new, state-of-the-art broadcast facility located on the lot of Universal Studios for the distinguished, long-time NBC News journalist Tom Brokaw. The “Brokaw News Center” was officially dedicated during a ceremony attended by the legendary newsman, his family and NBCUniversal executives and employees. It will be the new home of the West Coast operations of NBC News, CNBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo News, as well as of local stations NBC4 Southern California/KNBC and Telemundo 52/KVEA.

Brokaw, who began his career as a correspondent in the LA Bureau of NBC News at age 26, talked about his career, his legendary knack for memorizing scripts, the people who meant the most to him along the way, and the woman who helped him get on the right track early in life, and who has stood by him ever since.
