Tom Brokaw’s big Baby Boom show is on CNBC tonight. Two hours!

Marketing blitz includes a Brokaw interview featured on the front page/Calendar section of today’s L.A. Times.

RE: retirement, Brokaw quotes his colleague Andy Rooney: “Retire from what, life?”

Brokaw, who is 70, says he has “shifted gears,” after leaving his 44-year career at NBC, and that he’s found the right mix of work and pleasure.

“At some time in the future, I’ll probably shift again,” quoted the Times, remarking that he doesn’t see himself sitting on the porch, rocking the day away.

Maybe Brokaw has coined a movement: “Shifting Gears.” Now we don’t “retire,” we “shift gears.”

I like it.
