July 17, 2009

WASHINGTON, July 17 /PRNewswire/ —


“Walter Cronkite, who joined the National Press Club, will be held up as the standard for great journalists for generations to come,” NPC President Donna Leinwand said. “In 1973, the National Press Club recognized Cronkite’s enduring legacy when it awarded him its first Fourth Estate Award for extraordinary service to journalism. From his coverage of the Battle of the Bulge to his long tenure in the CBS News anchor chair, Walter Cronkite represented the best of American Journalism. He will be missed.”
