The legendary Walter Cronkite, KB2GSD has passed away at age 92 in New York.

CBS News article on his passing and history can be found here.

For the non-hams, SK means Silent Key. It’s a ham radio thing.

The ARRL has a nice story on his career & ham radio involvement here.

Even though he was considered pretty liberal in private, he possessed the ability to keep that out of his reporting. Something far too many of today’s newscasters could use a lesson in.
