    One of a kind....our country's grandfather!

    My best memories of him.....the Moon Landing in 1969 and July 4th 1976, the Bicentennial Celebration all day broadcast.....Tall Ships Parade in New York Harbor.

    The JFK death announcement is a classic, however, I was on a bus coming home and missed seeing it live.

    Any others?

    For W. Cronkite Fans...our DVR is set!

    "History Channel

    Monday, July 20, 2009
    8:30-9pm -- Live from '69: Moon Landing -
    This special takes viewers back to July 1969 to experience the actual CBS News/Walter Cronkite coverage of man's first lunar landing. Using minimal editing and leaving the original footage untouched viewers will feel as if they are watching the CBS coverage in July of 1969. While today we know the outcome of Apollo 11's mission it was not a given then. This will become evident watching Walter Cronkite and his colleagues as they watch the historic lunar mission unfold before them."
