This Week With David Brinkley

ABC News

When you wish to make a great cake you choose a great cook, use the finest of ingredients, and work very carefully to insure that each step in the preparation is exactly as it should be. This technique works well in television news and This Week With David Brinkley presented each Sunday morning by ABC News is an outstanding example. You take a good cook, in this case Executive Producer Dorrance Smith, add top notch ingredients in the person of host David Brinkley, mix in regular contributors George Will, Sam Donaldson and Jody Powell and ice it with special reports and perceptive interviewees and you produce a cake worthy of an award. Members of the Peabody Board liked the ABC News recipe for This Week With David Brinkley and, after sampling the result, present a Peabody for an exceptional and meritorious continuing effort.
