(Walter Cronkite-1916-2009 Midnight Eastern-into Saturday, July 18, 2009 - It has been just about five hours since Walter Cronkite took his last breath in his bed in his home in New York. We (the news media) had been told by his son Chip that the time was drawing near for the passing of the icon of CBS news. We have written many words in the past about our love affair with this news organization and its father figure Edward R. Murrow, but Mr. Cronkite was definitely up there with Murrow. As in the photo with this tribute, Cronkite was around CBS TV from the beginning but most don't realize that he didn't start the anchor job at CBS TV until 1962 Jerry Pippin (jerrypippin.com)
