The Watering Hole: April 16 – Walter Cronkite

On this date in 1962 Walter Cronkite took over as the lead news anchor of the CBS Evening News, during which time he would become “the most trusted man in America”.

When will Beck,Limbaugh or O’Reilly actually fill his shoes? My guess would be the first12th of never (I Googled that and found no references – I thought I heard it in a song sometime over the last 70 years.).
