Former CBS Evening News anchor Walter Cronkite died Friday night in New York City due to cerebral vascular disease.

Cronkite, 92, has previously anchored the CBS Evening News from 1962 to 1981, being started as a newspaper journalist in the 1930s before getting better throughout the succeeding years and became CBS’ anchorman. He covered the deaths of Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy, the World War II, and the 1969 Apollo landing. He retired in 1981 and was later replaced by Dan Rather.

And now that’s the way it is!
