The memory of Christine and Nicole Bloom’s father is never far away.
At Convent of the Sacred Heart, which the 17-year-old twins have attended since the third grade, the school’s state-of-the-art broadcast facility is named for their dad, the late television journalist David Bloom, who died of a blood clot in his leg while covering the Iraq war for NBC in April 2003.
The television studio includes the former “Today” show set that Bloom used while serving as anchor of the weekend edition of the morning news program in Manhattan. Nicole now serves as co-executive producer of the school’s monthly broadcast, aptly titled “Today from the Heart.”
When they graduate from Sacred Heart in June, the girls will have another fatherly presence at the ceremony. Journalist and author Tom Brokaw, former longtime anchor of “NBC Nightly News,” is scheduled to give the commencement address at the ceremony, set for June 1.
