He's the biggest name in television news broadcast history.

Walter Cronkite.

It didn't matter if you lived in New York City, Los Angeles....or maybe a little farmhouse near Leota, Minnesota.

At 5:30 P.M. (6:30 on the coast I suppose), there he'd be, the 'Most Trusted Man In America', telling us what happened in the world today.  And of course, the famous sign-off night after night after night.

'And that's the way it is'.

But Walter wasn't always there, of course.  There had to have been a beginning, that first news broadcast.

Well, here it is, the first 'Walter Cronkite CBS Evening News'.  And look who he's sitting down to talk with....
