Veteran TV journalist Garrick Utley, whose far-ranging career included anchoring duties as well as reporting from more than 70 countries, died of cancer in New York on Thursday. He was 74.

Utley began at NBC News in 1963, and for three decades handled a wide variety of assignments. Early on, he reported from Vietnam on the escalating conflict. In later years, he moderated “Meet the Press.”

In between, Utley anchored “Weekend Today” and the Sunday “Nightly News,” as well as two different newsmagazines in two different decades with four different titles.

“I may have been the only person at NBC News who did every type of programming as host or anchor,” he told the Associated Press in 1993, adding that his versatility may have led to the network taking him for granted. “There’s a risk in being the utility infielder.”

That was shortly after he had left NBC to be the chief foreign correspondent for ABC News. »
