Mark Weisenmiller on the career of Walter Cronkite

WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:

Marc Weisenmiller is a reporter based in the Tampa Bay Area, who works for the British-based Economist Magazine. He’s also the author of a biography on newscaster Chet Huntley, who as part of the Huntley-Brinkley report was one of the direct competitors of Walter Cronkite throughout the 1960’s.

In fact, as Weisenmiller discusses, Cronkite and the CBS Evening News did not become the news rating leader until 1970.

Mark Weisenmiller is the author of the book, Chet Huntley: Newscaster From the West: A New Kind of Book.
