Tom Brokaw Welcomes the Choir to YouTube

We’ve grown up with him. He’s been in our homes for as long as we can remember. When we hear his voice, we immediately recognize him—Tom Brokaw. Mr. Brokaw began his television reporting career in 1962, and he has worked as a Today Show host,NBC Nightly News anchor, and Meet the Press moderator. He is currently a special correspondent for NBC News. He is the author of numerous books, including The Greatest Generation. He has won numerous awards and holds 30 honorary degrees.

Brokaw has a history with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square; in 2011, Brokaw was the guest narrator for a special edition of Music and the Spoken Word titled “9/11: Rising Above.” The following year he returned to narrate the Choir’s annual Christmas concert. In this video, Brokaw welcomes us to YouTube and calls the Choir and Orchestra “an important part of the Brokaw musical library” and “a national treasure.”
