Both anchors were considered top-notch newsmen with very credible reputations. A 1965 survey revealed that Huntley & Brinkley were better known to American adults than John Wayne, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart and even the Beatles. Come to think of it, John Lennon once claimed that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus, but he conspicuously avoided comparing his band to Huntley & Brinkley. Coincidence? You decide. And speaking of the Beatles, despite CBS's claims to the contrary, the band made their American television debut on the Nov. 18, 1963 edition of the Huntley-Brinkley Report in a four minute story reported by Edwin Newman.
