David McClure Brinkley (July 10, 1920 – June 11, 2003) was an American newscaster for NBC, and later ABC in a career spanning from 1951–1997.

From 1956 through 1970, he co-anchored NBC's top rated nightly news program, The Huntley–Brinkley Report with Chet Huntley. In 1970, the broadcast was renamed NBC Nightly News, with Brinkley, John Chancellor, and Frank McGee co-anchoring. Later, in the 1980s and 1990s, Brinkley was host of the popular Sunday This Week with David Brinkley program, as well as a top commentator on election night coverage for ABC News.

Brinkley was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he began writing for a local newspaper, the Wilmington Morning Star, while still attending New Hanover High School. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Emory University, and Vanderbilt University, before entering service in the United States Army in 1941. Following his 1943 discharge, he moved to Washington, D.C., looking for a radio job at CBS News. Instead, he took a job at NBC News and became its first White House correspondent.
