Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. (November 4, 1916 - July 17, 2009) was a American broadcast journalist, best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News for 19 years (1962–81). During the heyday of CBS News in the 1970s and 1980s, he was often cited in viewer opinion polls as "the most trusted man in America" because of his professional experience and kindly demeanor. Cronkite died on July 17, 2009 at the age of 92 after an extended battle with cerebrovascular disease.

I personally feel, Walter Cronkite was the best Anchor Man in News History.
He gave the truth - and was the original Anchor Man of the News - I grew up with him on T.V.
May he Rest In Peace.
He did live a long life - passed at 92 years old.
CBS is doing a long segment about him right now - they cut into the program on.
