It's no surprise that CBS newsman Walter Cronkite influenced several iReporters. The veteran newscaster, known as the "most trusted man in America," died at 92.
"As an aspiring journalist and reporter, Walter Cronkite was someone I definitely looked up to," said KyleHD. The 22-year-old iReporter attended the Walker Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communications at Arizona State University.
"He wanted to be part of the next generation and the next wave of broadcasting," said KyleHD. "He tried to take what he knew and pass it on to students who will hopefully some day be like him."
Retired radio broadcaster TheDimmitt said Cronkite "is the example used worldwide of what a newsman should be." davidjw remembers watching Cronkite during countless news events, including the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, throughout the Vietnam War, and the Apollo Moon Landing. "He was the one who everybody turned to for news," he said.
