[March 11, 2009]  NEW YORK (AP) -- NBC's Tom Brokaw never claimed he was retiring when he left "Nightly News" after the 2004 election. Yet he's been almost as visible on TV as he was before.

Brokaw has signed on for a USA Network project that will have him traveling along U.S. Highway 50 in the coming months, reporting on the economic crisis and Americans' reaction to the first year of the Obama administration.

This is after filling in on NBC's "Meet the Press" for half of last year following Tim Russert's death, and frequently appearing alongside Brian Williams during coverage of high-profile events.

The USA project will culminate in a special around the one-year anniversary of Barack Obama's inauguration, although bits and pieces will be seen along the way on NBC News.
