Tom Brokaw Takes NBC Sports Network Hunting

Start Tribune

Former NBC nightly news anchor, Tom Brokaw, takes viewers pheasant hunting in South Dakota, which could become a major television series.

In South Dakota, hunting season is considered a big industry, but hasn’t been as big as it’s about to become when Tom Brokaw takes NBC Sports Network viewers with him to his native home.

“Opening Day” airs at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014. Rumors have it becoming a regularly appearing show added to the network’s lineup.

Brokaw ditched his guns while he lived in Los Angeles, but took up hunting again decades later. He currently splits his time between New York and Montana and always takes great pride in opening day of hunting season.

This possible television series is nothing new to Brokaw. For many years, he chronicled a series on the Outdoor Channel, “Buccaneers & Bones,” which was an annual fishing trip he conducted with friends.

Brokaw is 74 and continues to battle with myeloma, a cancer affecting blood cells in the bone marrow.
