Press Release Service – Wired PR News – Legendary television anchor Walter Cronkite has died at the age of 92. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Cronkite, who worked for “CBS Evening News” for nearly two decades, died Friday of cerebrovascular disease.
As noted by the AP, Cronkite’s diverse range of news stories and reporting style earned him such distinctions as “the most trusted man in America.” Morley Safer, a correspondent for “60 Minutes,” is quoted in the report as stating of Cronkite, “The trust that viewers placed in him was based on the recognition of his fairness, honesty and strict objectivity … and of course his long experience as a shoe-leather reporter covering everything from local politics to World War II and its aftermath in the Soviet Union… He was a giant of journalism and privately one of the funniest, happiest men I’ve ever known.”
