Walter Cronkite reads the CBS News (1956-1968)

 If one remembers any of Cronkite’s NEWS broadcasts prior to August 5 1968, one must have an excellent memory. Though he was “the most trusted man in America” for decades, most of his bulletins and live TV CBS NEWS studio broadcasts from the 1950's &1960's no longer survive. Until 1968, only a handful of air checks have been extant. The most known, reporting the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Sadly, thousands of his his reports televised on CBS television were erased or discarded, prior to 1968 and not mindfully archived by CBS until 1974...previously thought not worthy of saving.
