Linda Mason, the vice-president of CBS, said Mr Cronkite had died at 1942 local time (2342 GMT) on Friday after a long illness.

That's the way it is.
Rest in Peace.

He was an excellent anchorman for CBS...and was definately the Icon that so many of our present anchors try to emulate.

Rest In Peace, Walter Cronkite.

R.I.P.

Though I'm not sure he was nearly as objective as some claim, I still respect the man for doing his part.

Here's to you Walter Cronkite. And may you and Tim Russert chat it up in the clouds. (Or debate to no end.)

Pretty fitting for him to pass on right around the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, which is one of his most famous broadcasts.

R.I.P. original news anchor.

My mom said he used to have a boat named "Assignment" so when he would go boating, he would say "just tell them I'm on Assignment." :p
