Walter Cronkite Announces LBJ Death Here's something you've probably never seen before: the clip of Walter Cronkite announcing the death of former president Lyndon Baines Johnson on January 22, 1973. Cronkite, the consummate professional, gets the bulletin via telephone and seamlessly incorporates it into his live news broadcast.

Love the sound of the typewriters clicking away in the background. That's what a newsroom is supposed to sound like!

I wonder how many of today's esteemed television journalists would have the coolness to do what Walter Cronkite did here. I suspect most would be praying the network would go to a commercial so they could be adequately prepped.
