The individual who interviwed Tom Brokaw asked some rather different and odd questions that were not much interest to the audience. They asked for questions from the Audience, and they collected them, however when they were handed off, only one question was asked of Tom, when it appeared that many more questions were ready to go to him. The event ended in a rather abrupt manner, with no audience questions being asked. Tom Brokaw did a good job and his answers were what you would expect from Tom, thoughtful and resourceful. The event ended at 9PM leaving the audience to wonder why the questions were even collected.
Anchor of the NBC Nightly News and Peabody Award-winner, Tom Brokaw was a fixture in millions of living rooms for 22 years, regaling audiences with history as it broke story-by-story, day-by-day. As an author, Brokaw retains a lively interest in historical subjects: His first bestseller, The Greatest Generation, was a paean to those who fought and won World War II. Other work includes A Long Way From Home, about growing up in the American heartland, and BOOM! Voices of the Sixties. In his latest book, The Time of Our Lives: A Conversation About America, he takes a look at the American Dream through the lens of four generations of families, including his own.
