Tom Brokaw has signed a two-book deal with Random House, the publisher announced Monday, although what the former NBC anchor will actually write and when the books will come out remain unknown.
Random House publicist Tom Perry said that Brokaw, author of such best sellers as “The Greatest Geneation” and “The Greatest Generation Speaks,” was considering “various projects,” but declined to give further details. Financial terms, likely quite high, were not disclosed and no publication dates have been set, either.
In any case, both Brokaw and his editor at Random House, Kate Medina, issued celebratory statements Monday.
“The response to `The Greatest Generation’ and the books that followed has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my life,” Brokaw said.
“Tom Brokaw’s previous books struck a chord that reverberated across the nation,” Medina added. “I know that as Tom moves on to his next projects he will continue to define and expand upon our understanding of the American experience.”
