Update from Cronkite’s Family: He’s ‘Very Ill and Is Not Expected to Recuperate’

Jun 25, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The children of longtime CBS Newsman Walter Cronkite, who is 92 and had been the subject of conflicting health reports last week, are trying to set the record straight on the state of his cerebrovascular disease, the New York Post says.

They sent Post columnist Linda Stasi an email that said: "In order to dispel false rumors, Walter Cronkite’s family want it known that, sadly, he is very ill and is not expected to recuperate; he is resting at home surrounded by family, friends and a wonderful medical team. We thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes."
