Just a little needless junk rattling around in my head.
there will never be another walter cronkite, though we desperately need one these days. rest in peace, walter.
He was a classic.
We can never have another Walter Cronkite because he wouldn't have tolerated three weeks of Michael Jackson coverage or other Arts & Entertainment news to lead the nightly news.
Damn Skippy KZ! He would of been appalled. I will now have to read his memoirs. ;(
my walter storymy walter storywhen i started work right out of grad school - at CBS, i worked for "As the World Turns" as a "unit manager" - which meant i paid the bills for all the stuff they bought for the sets - like the coffee, curtains, the Post Office sign etc. (fancy huh?). since there was no room on the set for me to sit, they plopped me in the News Dept, 3 doors down from Walter himselfone day he introduced himself, said i was sitting in his old editors office and he took me on a tour of the newsroom - he knew as much about the production stuff as he did about journalism. i was impressed. one day soon after he bought me a burger at the cafeteria and always remembered my name. class act
What a great memory DCap! ;)
Exactly as I thought Walter would be. Dcap, thanks for sharing your experience as his friend. Your story will always be in my mind when I think of him.
Wow D-Cap, what a great story.Thanks for telling it here.Like my BigSis said, I'll add your story to my mind's Walter Cronkite file.
it's so nice when a celeb turns out to be the nice person you always imagined him to be. thanks for that, dcAp.
Loved the old "You Are There" program--and Walter always WAS there,looking us in the eye and telling the truth, for decades. I miss him yet.
