Walter Cronkite 1916- 2009

When I heard the news of the death of Walter Cronkite this past Friday, I instantly heard his voice in my mind. His rich, deep voice has been one of the most recognized voice of American broadcast journalism. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “”From the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, to the war in Vietnam, to the landing on the moon 40 years ago next week, Walter Cronkite delivered the news and provided trusted commentary on the events that shaped our history.”
