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.
