CBS has enlisted the voice talents of an Academy Award-winner as the new voice of the “CBS Evening News,” replacing that of Walter Cronkite, the Associated Press reports.

Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman replaces Cronkite, who had been the voice of the newscast since 2006, passed away in mid-July.

"As comforting as it is to look back on the great career that Walter had, we’re looking forward now and we just felt it was the right time to make the move that at some point had to be made," CBS News and Sports President Sean McManus told the AP.
