Walter Cronkite’s funeral: ‘He was just a reporter’


Walter Cronkite's funeral was held today at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in Manhattan. A classy affair for a class act. Broadcasting & Cable's Marissa Guthrie has a thorough report.

From Cronkite's son Chip:

"I admired my Dad. He was just a reporter, he’d say. He just ended up reporting bigger and bigger stories. He was fast too. I liked watching him swivel around and rewrite stories during the commercial breaks."
