Walter Cronkite

November 4, 1916 – July 17, 2009

Dubbed “The Most Trusted Man in America,” Walter Cronkite delivered the news into American living rooms for nearly 20 years.  Cronkite’s distinguished career, both as anchor and reporter, saw him reporting on some of the 2oth century’s most memorable moments, including (but certainly not limited to) World War II, the Apollo moon landing, the Watergate scandal and the assassination of President Kennedy.  He retired from full-time anchor work at CBS in 1981, leaving a 45-year legacy that will never see an equal.
