Walter Cronkite, CBS News's anchor from 1962 to 1981, known as "the most trusted man in America," died Friday in New York City at 92 of cerebrovascular disease. With a fatherly manner and deep baritone voice, he covered all troubling crises of his era – from the Cuban missile crisis to the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy to the Vietnam War and Watergate. "I had a pretty good seat at the parade," Cronkite once told a reporter. "I was lucky enough to have been born at the right time to see most of this remarkable century." (Photo: WENN)
