    I wasn't born when Kennedy was assassinated, but I have seen the footage of him as he told that news dozens of times. Everytime, I cried with him. My mom always said that when Walter Cronkite retired, the evening news was never the same. I have seen him in enterviews years later. He was a class act. He was legend.

    Voted "The most trusted man in America" in the 1970s, Mr. Cronkite is best remembered as a news anchor and reporter. But I fondly remember him hosting a great CBS show that was on Sunday evenings when I was a kid, called "You Are There".

    From Wikipedia:

    "The series also featured various key events in American and world history, portrayed in dramatic recreations, with one addition -- CBS News reporters, in modern-day suits, would report on the action and interview the characters. Each episode would begin with the characters setting the scene. Cronkite, from his anchor desk in New York, would give a few words on what was about to happen. An announcer would then give the date and the event, followed by a bold, "You Are There!"

    "Cronkite would then return to describe the event and its characters more in detail, before throwing it to the event, saying, 'Everything you see here was as it happened that day, except... You Are There.'"

    More info.

    Yes, isn't that amazing, not the "most trusted journalist" but the "most trusted man" in America! He delivered the news as no one else & also remember "You Are There," one of the few programs my parents would let us watch. May he RIP.
