    One of the last great reporters, now they are all just talking heads. Love him or hate him, he definatley had a presence.

    92 Years, can't complain about that life span. One of the greats of his profession.

    Well, bet he doesn't get the coverage Michael Jackson got.
    Who was the bigger icon of their industry?
    I'll say Cronkite.
    But most of the folks these days haven't a clue who he was.
    Ya know, no repeats/replays in the news like music/radio etc.:indifferent0004:

    Anyone ever watch the "You Are There" shows he did? I always thought those were pretty neat.
