NBC News legend Tom Brokaw revealed Tuesday that he has been diagnosed with cancer.
The 74-year-old former “NBC Nightly News” anchor said that he has multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow. NBC News said that he was given the diagnosis last August.
In a note to NBC staffers obtained by HuffPost, NBC News president Deborah Turness and NBCUniversal News Group chairman Pat Fili-Krushel said that Brokaw, who has worked at the network since 1966, had been given an optimistic prognosis by his doctors.
