Tim Cook to Be Profiled on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams Next Week

Tim Cook will be the center of a feature on NBC's Rock Center news show next week, the first major interview the CEO has given. Steve Jobs was famously camera shy, preferring to let Apple's products speak for themselves.

In this brief preview, Williams notes that Tim Cook was able to walk around Grand Central Station unrecognized until he got to the Apple Store there.


The full show will air on NBC next Thursday, December 6th.

I see Tim regularly at the Fraiche Yogurt shop in Palo Alto with his iPad. He never seems to recognize me though ;)

Haha, that's what I was going to say. Being selective is not the same as being camera shy.

Yeah, maybe camera shy isn't the right choice of words. But he rarely spoke, if ever, spoke about his personal life - or about himself- when giving interviews. It was always about the products and values...

Except for that whole book thing towards the end.
