Legendary NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw is featured in an exclusive interview in the Winter 2020 issue of Artful Living magazine.

In the issue, Brokaw, 79, shares stories about his career as anchor for NBC News, his nearly six-decade marriage to his wife Meredith, as well as his battle with cancer; Brokaw also discusses his Midwest roots, being raised in South Dakota.

"What you got was what you earned. No one gave you anything, and hard work was rewarded," Brokaw told Artful Living. "I got a lot of attention at a young age because I was the gabby kid and was very active in school and athletics."
