McLoone To Appear On NBC Nightly News

Posted: 22 December by Brett Hoover in Alumni, Harvard

Early this month ran a profile of Harvard track-and-field alumnus Tim McLoone and his Holiday Express. Now Brian Williams and NBC Nightly News is paying respect to McLoone in the acclaimed “Making A DIfference” segment (Friday, December 24, 6:30 pm).

Writes Richard Huff of the New York Daily News:

“I grew up listening to Tim McLoone play the Tradewinds [nightclub] when I was in high school,” says Williams, who was raised in Middletown, N.J. “We danced and had a good old time to Tim McLoone.”

Despite Williams’ intimate knowledge of McLoone’s early years – and having recently eaten at one of McLoone’s restaurants in Sea Bright, N.J. – it was his NBC News co-worker Natalie Morales who suggested McLoone for the segment.

“It’s unbelievable,” Williams says. “He doesn’t ask for attention or compensation, he just does it.”

Just does it? Nike would be proud.
