Brokaw honored with Peabody Award


Yankton, South Dakota-native Tom Brokaw has another award to add to his impressive resume.

During Monday's 73rd-annual Peabody Awards ceremony, Brokaw received a personal Peabody.

The achievement award recognized the news veteran's long career in journalism. "If you live long enough, these kinds of awards come to you - and or - you get cancer," Brokaw said. "Turns out, my friends know that I go for the long run, I ended up doing both and it's going to work out, life is going to be okay."

Brokaw also said he was humbled by the recognition.
