Cronkite Memorial Guest Speaker list

On September 9th, Lincoln Center in New York City will host the Walter Crokite memorial service, which, according to a NYPost Page Six listing, will feature several high-profile speakers:

President Obama is expected to speak, as are Bill Clinton, Buzz Aldrin for NASA, and Nick Clooney in place of his son, George — who entertained the beloved CBS anchorman at his villa on Lake Como and will be away at the Venice Film Festival. Then, the CBS brass will speak: Les Moonves, Sean McManus, Bob Schieffer and maybe Andy Rooney, if he can. Rooney choked up at the funeral and couldn’t deliver his eulogy. Tom Brokaw and Howard Stringer will also speak between performances by Wynton Marsalis, Michael Feinstein, Jimmy Buffett and Mickey Hart, and the US Marine Corps band.

Katie Couric will also speak and there will be a few group presentations as well. TVNewser will have more details as they are released.
