Site will carry live webcast of memorial service

CBSNews.com will carry a live webcast of Walter Cronkite’s funeral service at 2 p.m. ET Thursday from St. Bartholomew’s Church in Manhattan.

The Rev. William McD. Tully will preside over the service. Other set to speak include longtime CBS News correspondent Andy Rooney and Cronkite’s son, Chip Cronkite.

CBS News will do a segment on the funeral in tonight’s edition of “The CBS Evening News” but does not plan any other on-air coverage.

Cronkite, the longtime CBS News anchor who died July 17 at the age of 92, will be buried in his home state of Missouri, alongside his wife Betsy, whose funeral was held at St. Bartholomew’s in 2005.
