Young Tom Brokaw, raised in the Midwest town of Yankton, South Dakota, got his first job in television at KTIV in Sioux City, Iowa, and eventually found himself heading west to report for NBC News in Los Angeles, California.  The year?  1966, right when Ronald Reagan was campaigning for election to his first public office as Governor of California. Tom Brokaw came to the Reagan Library on April 14, 2012, to discuss his sixth best-selling book, “The Times of our Lives.”  The book, much like countless Ronald Reagan speeches, quite admirably takes on the challenge of inspiring Americans to make a positive difference in their families, their communities, and their country as we work together to revitalize the American dream. During his time at the Reagan Library, Tom Brokaw sat down in conversation with Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute executive director John Heubusch to discuss the book, his memories of Ronald Reagan, and the importance of civility. Let’s listen.
