Cronkite’s Voice to Remain on CBS Evening News

Back in 2006, when Katie Couric took over anchor duties on the CBS EVENING NEWS, Walter Cronkite recorded the introduction to the program.

When Cronkite died last Friday at 92, CBS announced they would no longer use that recording, fearing it would be inappropriate since Cronkite was gone. But they appear to have reconsidered that decision, after receiving a blessing from members of Cronkite’s family to continue using the famous anchor’s voice.

Cronkite anchored the CBS EVENING NEWS from 1962, when it expanded from 15 minutes to a half-hour in length, until his retirement in 1981.
