For Walter Cronkite, An Election Day To Remember

WC.jpgFor legendary newsman Walter Cronkite, Election Day is not the only event on tomorrow’s calendar. It’s also his 92nd birthday.

Cronkite, born November 4, 1916 in St. Joseph, Missouri, will begin his day “with a trip to the voting booth,” says his Chief of Staff, Marlene Adler. Adler tells TVNewser that “given his long political news career…it seems quite fitting that for his birthday this year he will be getting a new president!”

After voting, Adler says, “if the weather permits, family members will join him for an afternoon sail in and around New York City’s waterways, followed by a private dinner. At some point in the evening, (probably around cocktail time), he will tune into the election coverage on television.”

“Family, friends, sailing, and a presidential election — one could not design a more perfect birthday for Walter Cronkite!,” Adler says.
