We eagerly await the visit from broadcasting legend Tom Brokaw, as he will keynote the Indiana Chamber’s 21st Annual Awards Dinner in November. And while Brokaw is retired from the national news, it seems he hasn’t quite given up his journalistic desire. Be sure to mark your calendars or set your DVRs to record his March 4 presentation on CNBC about the Baby Boomber Generation. Here is some info:
They were born between 1946 and 1964, a vast and prosperous group of Americans who lived through the Cold War, Vietnam, Watergate and the housing bubble. They wore Buster Browns, played with hula-hoops, ate at the drive-thru and watched the Beatles play on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Raised during a time of unprecedented affluence, they exhibited extraordinary optimism and faith in the future. Now, as the oldest among them approach the age of retirement, they face a world of new challenges and opportunities they never anticipated or dreamed possible.
On Thursday, March 4th at 9PM ET/PT, CNBC presents “TOM BROKAW REPORTS: BOOMER$!” a CNBC original reported by NBC News Special Correspondent Tom Brokaw. After defining “The Greatest Generation” in his bestselling book, Brokaw now turns his sights to their successors, the generation that vowed to change the world.
“Now, at this critical crossroads in the nation and in their lives, what do boomers do next – and how do they get there? It’s a question that affects all of us and will for a long time to come,” said Brokaw.
