Women Issue Support For Tom Brokaw

Following allegations of sexual misconduct against longtime NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw – and Brokaw’s denial of any wrongdoing – more than 60 of Brokaw’s past and present female colleagues at the Peacock Network have come to his defense.

Signers of a letter in support of Brokaw include some of the network’s biggest names, including Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Mika Brzezinski and Maria Shriver, according to Fox News.

They write that Brokaw, “has treated each of us with fairness and respect. He has given each of us opportunities for advancement and championed our successes throughout our careers,” according to

The colleagues add that they view Brokaw as “a man of tremendous decency and integrity.”

The letter was composed by Elizabeth Bowyer, co-head of brand and content strategy at Goldman Sachs, who then distributed it to some staffers at NBC, where Bowyer previously worked for Brokaw and NBC News, Variety reported.

Brokaw, 78, is now a “special correspondent” at NBC after many years as anchor of the “NBC Nightly News” and co-host of the “Today” show.
