Chester Robert "Chet" Huntley (December 10, 1911 – March 20, 1974) was an American television newscaster.

Huntley was born in Cardwell, Montana. He graduated from Whitehall High School in Whitehall and attended Montana State College in Bozeman and Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle before graduating from the University of Washington in 1934.

Huntley began his radio newscast career at Seattle's KIRO AM, later working on radio stations in Spokane and Portland. In 1937 he went to work for KFI in Los Angeles, moving to CBS Radio from 1939-51, then ABC Radio from 1951-1955. In 1955, he joined the NBC Radio network, viewed by network executives as "another Ed Murrow."
