Earlier this week, Tom Brokaw announced to the public that he has been diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. Mr. Brokaw is now exclusively addressing his "An American Story" listeners with a statement about his diagnosis and how he is coping, but says he would like to remain out of the spotlight.

He also gives a few tips on how to deal with friends who have cancer in the segment.

Tom is one of America's beloved journalists and news anchors with a long, successful career in the field. WOR has been honored to team up with Mr. Brokaw for his show "An American Story," and appreciate his willingness to reach out to his listeners.
