In December 2004, Tom Brokaw stepped down after 21 years as the anchor
and managing editor of NBC Nightly News. He continues to work with NBC,
reporting and producing documentaries and providing expertise during
breaking news events. Brokaw will give the keynote address on Wednesday,
Sept. 17 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Brokaw has received numerous honors and awards, including the Edward R.
Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award and an Emmy for Lifetime Achievement.
He was inducted as a fellow into the prestigious American Academy of Arts
and Sciences, and as a member of the Horatio Alger Association of
Distinguished Americans. He has received the Records of Achievement award
from the Foundation of the National Archives, and the Association of the U.S.
Army honored him with their highest award, the George Catlett Marshall
Award, first ever to a journalist.
In addition to Brokaw, political consultants James Carville and Mary Matalin will also headline the show.
A few of you may remember that I made fun of the counter on the ASIS web site that kept track of exactly how many seconds were left until the show began. Now, that the tool is gone â€” maybe I should start one of my own. The countdown to the seminar begins now!
