Walter Cronkite, 1916-2009

Walter Cronkite, the CBS News anchor who famously became the most trusted man in America, died Friday at the age of 92.

I grew up listening to him and really don't remember other TV anchors of that era. It was an era when folks like Walter were reporters that seemed to project a journalistic integrity that we often miss these days.

May God comfort his family and friends.


  1. I remember Frank Reynolds and Howard K. Smith from when I was growing up, too, but Cronkite was always the gold standard for network news anchors. As I sort of alluded on my blog post this morning on this same topic, I wish we had more like him today.

  2. Now that you mention it Matt I remember those guys too.. as well as Huntley & Brinkley.
