Thinking Aloud
Revisiting the Era of Broadcast News Giants, with Bob Walz and Dale Cressman
Our nation has witnessed a fair number of broadcast news giants, from the days of WWII newsreels to last night's update from Iraq. What was the recipe that produced an Edward R. Murrow or a Walter Cronkite? And is there any lingering public appetite for these kinds of icons or celebrities in the news business? Thinking Aloud's Wes Sims interviews scholars and broadcasters Robert Walz and Dale Cressman in this retrospective on a (bygone?) era never to be forgotten.—Original airdate: 10/20/2006
