New York Times Memorializes NBC News Icon Utley '61

February 21, 2014

The New York Times, among many other media outlets, memorialized NBC News icon Garrick Utley '61, who reported from Vietnam and Europe and moderated its influential Sunday-morning show, “Meet the Press,” from 1989-91. Utley succumbed after a long battle with cancer at the age of 74.  Utley, whose NBC career started in 1963 in Europe, was perhaps best known for his coverage of the Vietnam War. He later worked for ABC and CNN before his retirement. Utley, a former Carleton Board of Trustee member, presented a May 2001 convocation after the publishing of his memoir, "You Should Have Been Here Yesterday: A Life in Television News."
