Cronkite’s Death ‘Not Imminent,’ His Longtime Assistant Says

Jun 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

On Friday the newswires were full of reports that legendary CBS newsman Walter Cronkite, 92, was "gravely ill." In one report his friend Andy Rooney, 90, said he had just visited Cronkite on Thursday, and that Cronkite was not doing well at all.

Now, however, Cronkite’s longtime assistant, Marlene Adler, tells Newsday that "only God knows when life will end and for Walter, it’s not imminent."

The respected veteran TV reporter Verne Gay, who wrote the piece we linked to on Friday, wrote this latest report as well.
