Legendary News Anchor Walter Cronkite Dies at Age 92

Longtime CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite, one the the legends of TV news, has died at the age of 92.

He started in journalism in the 1930s and later became a familiar TV face known to virtually all Americans, at a time before cable and satellite, when people only had three broadcast networks on TV.

Cronkite covered many of the major stories of the 20th century, from the Nuremberg Trials after World War II to the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy to Apollo moon landings and the Vietnam War.

Rest in peace, Walter... we'll miss you.
