Tom Brokaw is a famous journalist and writer. He is mostly known as the author of ‘The Greatest Generation’ and also as a host of such programs as NBC Nightly News, The Today Show and Meet the Press. During his career Tom has won many awards. Some of them include the Peabody award, Emmy Award, American Legion award and others. What is more, Tom Brokaw is included in the Television Hall of Fame. So how rich is Tom Brokaw? It has been estimated that Tom’s net worth is $90 million dollars. This sum of money might become even higher as Tom still continues his career as a journalist and writer.

Tom Brokaw Net Worth $90 Million

Thomas John Brokaw, better known to the world as Tom Brokaw, was born in 1940, in South Dakota. Tom studied at the University of South Dakota where he received a degree in Political Science. Tom’s career as a journalist began in such televisions stations as KTIV, WSB-TV and KMTV. From that time Tom Brokaw’s net worth began to grow. Later Brokaw worked at NBC News as a correspondent of White House and as an anchor of Nightly News. As Tom was quite successful at this job, in 1976 he started to work as a host of a program called The Today Show.

In 1983 Brokaw became a host of NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw. This added a lot to Brokaw’s net worth. Tom even had an opportunity to interview Vladimir Putin and Mikhail Gorbachev. What is more, Brokaw has covered such events as Hurricane Andrew, the fall of Berlin Wall, the Loma Prieta earthquake and many others events. This made Tom popular and acclaimed among other journalists. In 2004 Tom decided to close this program, but by that time he was already considered to be one of the most popular journalists. Recently, Tom still works with NBC News: he produces documentary programs and also works as an anchor and analyst. This of course has had a huge impact on Tom Brokaw’s net worth.

In addition to this, Tom is a member of the board of directors in such organizations as Committee to Protect Journalists, International Rescue Committee and Council on Foreign Relations. In 2011 Tom became a host of ‘The Boys in the Hall’.

As mentioned before, Tom is not only a well known journalist but he is also a successful writer. During his career, Brokaw has released 7 books: The Greatest Generation, The Greatest Generation Speaks, A Long Way From Home: Growing Up in the American Heartland, An Album of Memories, The Time of Our Lives: A Conversation about America and others. This of course made Tom’s net worth grow.

Finally, it could be said that Tom Brokaw is one of the most famous journalists. During his career Tom has achieved a lot and gained the popularity and acclaim that he deserved. As Brokaw is still working with NBC News there is a high possibility that Tom Brokaw’s net worth will become even higher. What is more, he might also release more books and this would of course influence his net worth.

#Quote
1 [on Steven Spielberg] His productions have a common thematic DNA of humanity, so we are enlightened as well as entertained. His work on Lincoln (2012), alone, was worthy of enduring acclaim, for it brought to life - as no other film has - this quintessential American President, struggling with the greatest moral dilemma of our history.
2 Within every generation there is greatness. What you don't want Americans to do again is to go through the tests that made the 'Greatest Generation': first, the Depression, and then World War II.
3 The most memorable interviews for me are folks whose names I don't know: young civil rights leaders in the South, showing great courage as they walked into a town in the dark of night. A doctor working for 'Doctors Without Borders'in Somalia, operating by kerosene light in a tent. Those are the kinds of people that linger in your memory.
4 [on the many changes in the source of news stories] We're better off. We have so many more choices. What happens is, of course, that the squeaking wheel continues to get attention. I have a little tool in my house - you should get one - it's called the remote control.
5 I guess I'm always the person to see the glass is half-full. There's always good news in every news report. If you're going to live in a society, you need to know the underside as well as the bright spot, so you can be prepared for dealing with them.
6 I'm not a big fan of journalism schools, except those that are organized around a liberal arts education. Have an understanding of history, economics and political science - and then learn to write.
7 It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference.
8 Heroes are people who rise to the occasion and slip quietly away.
