Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. (November 4th, 1916 – July 17th, 2009) was an American broadcast journalist, best known as anchorman for the CBS Evening News for 19 years (1962–81).

During the heyday of CBS News in the 1960s and 1970s, he was often cited as "the most trusted man in America" after being so named in an opinion poll.

Although he reported many events from 1937 to 1981, including bombing in World War II, the Nuremberg trials, combat in the Vietnam War, the death of President John F. Kennedy, Watergate, and the Iran Hostage Crisis, he was known for extensive TV coverage of the U.S. space program, from Project Mercury to the Moon landings to the Space Shuttle.

He was the only non-NASA recipient of a Moon-rock award.
