Television news anchor Tom Brokaw, formerly of Pound RIdge-- who is facing charges of sexual misconduct -- has been replaced by Linda McMahon of Greenwich, a presidential Cabinet member, as Sacred Heart University’s commencement speaker.

The change was announced on Friday, April 27 in a memo to the university community by Sacred Heart President John Petillo.

“This morning Tom Brokaw informed us of his decision to withdraw as our undergraduate commencement speaker,” Petillo wrote. “Given events in the news, Mr. Brokaw did not want to distract from the intended and most important focus of the day — our graduating students and their families."
