The gold standard of broadcast journalism Walter Cronkite died yesterday after a long illness. He was 92. For nearly 20 years, Cronkite was the anchorman of the “CBS Evening News.”  His trusting manner and steady demeanor earned him the respect of his colleagues and the public. Years after retiring, Cronkite was still considered the most trusted man in America.  

On the Los Angeles Times website, a nice article about Cronkite’s distinguished career.
