Tom Brokaw gave the men and women who fought World War II overseas and on the home front a title deserving of their perseverance, struggle and triumph. The Greatest Generation, Brokaw’s 1998 bestseller about those who grew up in the Great Depression and would go on to build up America after the war, identified the then-NBC Nightly News anchor as an authority on the subject, lending Brokaw an air of distinction among his colleagues and solidifying a sterling reputation among the general public. The television journalist, author and managing editor of the NBC Nightly News is guest of Oklahoma State University’s Spears School of Business Center for Executive & Professional Development for two events on Tuesday, April 2. Brokaw talks on The Voice of a Generation from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Mabee Center, 7777 S. Lewis Ave., Tulsa, for the Tulsa Business Forums speakers series. Tickets are $75 each. The speaker moves on for the 4-5:30 p.m. engagement at Oklahoma Civic Center Music Hall, in the morning and at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave., Oklahoma City, for the Executive Management Briefings series. Admission is $75. To register, go to www.cepd.okstate.edu.
