His is a death we knew had to happen one day. But I did not think he would die during the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. As a child, it was Walter Cronkite and CBS News we would watch for the moon shots. It was a sad day when he got tossed aside for Dan Rather. His death is a more profound loss of a generation that knew how to cover news and respect their audience.

Rest in peace Mr. Cronkite.

Here are two videos from CBS News. The first is the CBS News special report announcing his death. The second is Cronkite remembering the Apollo 11 mission.
