Mini Bio (1)

Chet Huntley, a native of Bozeman, Montana, worked for Movietone News and then CBS radio in Los Angeles, as well as NBC TV in Los Angeles. His big break came when he moderated NBC coverage of the 1956 political conventions, when he was paired with former UPI reporter David Brinkley. This partnership led to the Huntley-Brinkley report, the NBC nightly newscast which ran weeknights on NBC until 1970. Chet also participated in historical events, such as November 22, 1963, when, along with stunned colleagues Bill Ryan and Frank McGee, he brought to NBC viewers live coverage and instant analysis of the events surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Chet later, after Huntley-Brinkley went off the air, became a spokesman for American Airlines and started his own Montana resort. He passed away in 1974, not long after his colleague Frank McGee.
