#Fact
1Biography in: "The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives". Volume 7, 2003-2005, pages 46-48. Farmington Hills, MI: Thomson Gale, 2007.
2Survived by three sons: Joel, a writer for the New York Times; Alan, a provost at Columbia University; and John, a director of the United States Institute for Peace in Washington. He is also survived by a stepdaugher, Alexis Brinkley Collins.
3Surprised many colleagues when he became a spokesman for Archer-Daniels-Midland, the agribusiness company, in 1998.
4In his final election night program, in 1996, he called then-President Clinton a bore and telling voters they could expect more "goddamned nonsense" for the next four years. He later apologized to Clinton.
5His vocal delivery of the news was known for clipped sentences spoken in measured cadences and in a sardonic voice.
6His distinctive tone of delivering the news began in World War II, when, he said, he took to underlining words to insure the correct emphasis on the radio and developed his "jerky, labored way of speaking." *
7Children (with Fisher): Alan, John, Joel

9During his career which spanned more than half a century, Brinkley won 10 Emmy awards, three George Foster Peabody Awards and, in 1992, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor.

#Quote
1A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
2I wish to say that we all look forward with great pleasure to four years of wonderful, inspiring speeches, full of wit, poetry, music, love, and affection. Plus more goddamned nonsense.
3The only way to do news on television is not to be terrified of it. Most of the news isn't very important. In fact, very little of it is.
4"Most of my life I've simply been a reporter covering things, and writing and talking about it." (1992)
