Walter Cronkite: The First Man Of News Has Died at 92!
How ironic can it be that on the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that Walter Cronkite would depart this life?
After Mr Cronkites retirement from CBS, you didn't hear much about him to the point I thought he had passed without my knowledge. This was indeed the first man of news during my youngest days of the civil rights movement.
Walter covered it all bringing breathtaking information to all of his viewers with a voice Hollywood adored.
The most significant news of the day during that era was delivered by Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News.
Walter Cronkite, dead at 92! A True Legend of the News Room.
