I literally grew up with Walter Cronkite-actually from even before him, as a child I saw Edward R. Murrow, Douglas Edwards, and afterward-David Brinkley, Chet Huntley, Eric Sevareid, all either predecessors of or contemporaries of Walter Cronkite. Ed Murrow brought investigative reporting to television and Walter Cronkite defined the role of a network news anchor. Walter Cronkite gave you the ineffable sense that he was talking directly to you, like a neighbor would, while being an impeccable news reporter. We've lost a giant, whose famous closing line I'll use in tribute..Mr. Cronkite, you informed and uplifted us all..."and that's the way it is...". Godspeed, sir.

When I was growing up Walter Cronkite was the news. He was a giant of broadcast journalism and there'll never be another like him.

Thanks for sharing that, Mike. You had an opportunity to sit down with one of the giants, and you made the most of it. Well done.

Too bad he couldn't make it until tomorrow, the 40th anniversary of Apollo
