Share Your Cronkite Memories

The "most trusted man in America" is gone.

Walter Cronkite, who personified television journalism for more than a generation as anchor and managing editor of the "CBS Evening News," has died. CBS vice president Linda Mason says Cronkite died at 7:42 p.m. Friday with his family by his side at his home in New York after a long illness. He was 92.

People across america are sharing their memories of the legendary newsman. We're inviting you to do the same by posting a comment below.


  1. I remember him during the broadcast of President Kennedy's funeral. Was young at the time but remember it vividly. I also remember him being at a loss for words when man landed on the moon. That was something that was totally unexpected from him.

  2. I'm sad to say I don't have any Walter Cronkite memories. I guess I'm too young. But I've really enjoyed watching all these stories about him in the last week. He really was a hero of broadcast news.

  3. Bob Barlett was born in the wild wild west never
    owned a gun his mouth was his weapon.
