The article provides observations about the career and death of David Brinkley, a pioneering television newsman whose clipped, sardonic voice was among the medium's most recognizable and respected for four decades. Born in North Carolina, he reported for United Press before moving to Washington in 1943 to work for NBC News. Teamed with the more somber Chet Huntley, first at the 1956 political conventions and then for a 14-year run on the nightly Huntley-Brinkley Report, he helped NBC surpass CBS in the ratings and ushered in a more easygoing, intimate style that contrasted with the increasingly pontifical delivery of Edward R. Murrow and his aging band at CBS.
