Brokaw pens book deal

Financial terms of deal, tome's subject not disclosed

NEW YORK — Recently retired NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw has inked a two-book deal with his longtime publisher Random House.

Random House and Brokaw provided no info as to what the books will be about. Pub house said the veteran newsman is considering various projects.

Brokaw stepped down as anchor of NBC News’ “Nightly News” on Dec. 1 but remains on staff at the Peacock’s news division, where he intends to work on longform projects.

Financial terms of Brokaw’s book deal weren’t disclosed, although it’s almost certain to be in the hefty six-figure range, considering that his previous books on World War II veterans were bestsellers.

“The response to ‘The Greatest Generation’ and the books that followed has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my life,” Brokaw said in a statement.

No publication date was set.
