It looks like former CBS News anchorman and living journalism legend is going to be producing commentaries for the Retirement Living Network.
In September, The New York Times reported that Mr. Cronkite “would be the highest-profile hire for the channel.” Mr. Cronkite’s son Chip works for Retirement Living TV, which is based in Columbia, Md.
In his “Cronkite Commentaries,” he will comment on topics like the presidential primaries, political party conventions and environmental issues, the channel said in a news release.
In an interesting twist, Katie Couric, the current anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” will voice the introductions for Mr. Cronkite’s essays. Mr. Cronkite served as the announcer for Ms. Couric’s newscast when it debuted last year.
Should be interesting. I remember watching him sign off for the last time on CBS. I was working as an orderly in a hospital at the time.
