Eleven years ago, I did a half-hour interview with Walter Cronkite. It is one of the highlights of my career.
Lost in all the talk this week of his epic work for CBS news is the fact that Cronkite was a big fan of the arts.
A private funeral service for the legendary CBS anchorman is scheduled for Thursday at St. Bartholomew's Church in New York.
A memorial is to be held within the next month in Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, according to his longtime chief-of-staff Marlene Adler.
Oh, and by the way....Cronkite will still introduce "The CBS Evening News" after his death. That decision was made earlier this week.
