Brokaw: TV was “Least Appealing Part”

<img alt="tb.jpg" src="/fishbowlDC/files/original/tb.jpg" width="260" height="261" class="alignright" hspace="3" vspace="3"/The Hill’s Capital Living Editor Kris Kitto interviewed Special Correspondent for NBC News Tom Brokaw on Brokaw’s upcoming documentary, “American Character Along Highway 50″, which airs this Monday, Jan. 18 on the USA Network.

Asked how it feels to be out of the anchor chair, Brokaw said, “It’s time. It has been from the beginning. I knew what I was doing. This was my idea. Someone had once calculated that I had been on the air almost every day since I was 19, and I was 64 when I retired. I’d been on television a lot, but being on television was the least appealing part for me. I love the work.”
