Tom Brokaw says his recent fight against cancer has made him more humble and also appreciate his loving relationship with his wife of 52 years.
"[Meredith and I] have been married a long time,'' the former NBC Nightly News and TODAY
anchor told Parade
"This cancer experience has just deepened my awe of her. It's hard for me to say I love her more. This has deepened our relationship. We've always cared about each other a lot, but I so depended on her through this."
Brokaw, 75, underwent months of treatment after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma in August 2013 and is currently in remission.
"If there's an oxymoron in American life it's 'humble anchorman,' '' he added. "Cancer has given me a dose of humility. I'm much more empathetic."
