America’s Broadcast Compass
Walter Cronkite was America’s compass in turbulent times. Listen to his words of perspective on the day JFK was laid to rest as an example of the anchorman’s communicative gifts. Those of us who grew up watching and listening to the CBS anchor were motivated by his excellence in reporting and his humanity. Uncle Walter teaches us that to be trustworthy is earned by the constant practice of credibility in the reporting of facts. Mr. Cronkite’s voice shall always be our model to which all journalists should aspire.
