NBC Says Brokaw Does So Write His Own Books

nbc-news-log08.JPG

Jenny Tartikoff of NBC emails us about our recent post about Tom Brokaw and the cheapo scholarship:

The scholarship program was established to honor Tom Brokaw’s 30 years of service to NBC News. It’s just one scholarship opportunities offered to NBC/GE employees by NBC News, not Tom Brokaw.

Okay, we were wrong. It’s NBC News that’s cheap, not Brokaw.

The scholarship has already helped 18 students. It’s a highly competitive award and a great honor to receive.

It started in 1998 as a $5,000 award and increased last year to $7,500

So, after 10 years, NBC kicks in another $2500? We’d heard that GE wasn’t happy with NBC’s profit performance.

Lastly, Tom Brokaw has written all of his books and any suggestion ortherwise is categorically untrue.

We linked to Tabloid Baby, who quoted James Brady in Forbes. There must be more history to this.
