OXFORD -- NBC's Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw returns to Oxford, Mississippi, to deliver the 163rd Ole Miss commencement address.
Brokaw, the only person to host all three major NBC News programs: "Today," ''Nightly News" and "Meet the Press," will speak to graduating students at 9 a.m. on May 14 in the Grove.
WMC-TV reports Brokaw also served as a guest lecturer for the University of Mississippi School of Journalism and New Media in 2010.
Chancellor Jeff Vitter says they're looking forward to Brokaw's insights. Vitter describes Brokaw as "one of the most astute observers of our culture and its evolution over the past half-century" who has "enjoyed a front-row seat at some of the most significant events of our time, and his discernments on American politics and life are remarkable."
