CBS Reversal: Cronkite’s Voice to Continue to Introduce Couric Newscast

Jul 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

CBS News has reversed its decision to stop having the voice of the late Walter Cronkite introduce the "CBS Evening News with Katie Couric," according to the Associated Press.

CBS said that Cronkite’s family has given approval to the decision. Earlier, CBS President Sean McManus said it might not be appropriate to keep using that announcement after Cronkite’s death, so they wouldn’t.

  1. I completely understand the reversal. Couric needs all the help she can get. Now that she’s too long in the tooth to be considered “perky” she needs the endorsement of an old dead guy like Cronkite. Poor, pathetic Katie. I think it’s time she retired.
