David Brinkley’s Journal

NBC Television

David Brinkley and his producer, Ted Yates, have added a new dimension of humor, skepticism, and wisdom to television news in David Brinkley’s Journal, the writing and scope of which are far more sophisticated than most TV news programs. In rewarding this program with the Peabody Television Award for 1961, we remember that this is not the first time Mr. Brinkley has been honored by Peabody.
