Flashback: Pre-teen David Ushery Interviews Walter Cronkite on WFSB


Hartford CBS affiliate WFSB took a trip down memory lane on Sunday’s “Face the State with Dennis House.”

As an 11-year-old, David Ushery, WNBC‘s weekend anchor, hosted a Saturday morning children’s show on WFSB called “Kidsworld.” Ushery interviewed Walter Cronkite (video above) in 1979.

Cronkite told Ushery about his beginnings in the business — starting as editor of his high school newspaper — and talks about his ideal qualities in a newscaster: “a person with a sense of curiosity, with a desire to work and an ability, a physical and mental ability, to work long hours with a high degree of intensity.”
