Edward R. Murrow (1908-1965) was an American broadcast journalist. A pioneer of television news broadcasting, Murrow is best remembered for his television series Person to Person and See It Now, and for his series of news reports on Senator Joseph McCarthy.
- In an episode of Sam and Friends, the "Poison to Poison" sketch is a lipsynched parody (to a Spike Jones album track) of Murrow's Person to Person, with Harry the Hipster taking on the role of cigarette smoking "Ed Burrow."
- Brian Williams signs off his Word of the Day segment in Sesame Street Episode 4135 saying, "Good day, and good squid."
- Episode 4181 of Sesame Street features a nod to Murrow when a chicken signs off his newscast with "Good night, and good cluck," a play on Murrow's signature sign off of "Good night, and good luck."
