Walter Cronkite

Walter Cronkite, an iconic CBS News journalist who defined the role of anchorman for a generation of television viewers, died Friday at the age of 92.

His career peak was before my time, but here I am, remembering the man whose voice I often heard when significant events in modern history are featured on TV.

 

Who could forget that very moment he announced President John F. Kennedy’s death?

Or his 27-hour air time to share with the viewers Apollo 11’s 30-hour mission to the moon?

The “8th astronaut”, the “most trusted man in America”, the greatest journalist in the world is gone.

 

 

RIP, Mr. Cronkite. Thank you.
