I Wanna Be Like Walt

Sad news about the death of the “Most Trusted Man in America.” My hubby said Walter Cronkite passed away while I was sleeping.


He lived an amazing life. His career highlights include Apollo 11, JFK’s assassination and the Vietnam War. He demanded excellence and integrity in the newsroom. I remember reading his scripts in J-School: succinct, sharp and no BS. I think he will continue to be an inspiration to all journalists.

RIP Walter Cronkite
