Edward R Murrow Edward R. Murrow was arguably the most important and influential journalist in American history. His first-person radio reports from hot-spot European locales in the late 1930s gave his CBS listeners a sense of how the world was moving towards war. Murrow is most renowned for his compelling radio broadcasts from London during the Blitz. They always began, 'This...is London.' Murrow's distinguished career continued into the television era with See It Now and various specials. He famously took on Senator Joseph McCarthy when a friend, Laurence Duggan, committed suicide after McCarthy accused him of being a communist spy. (An examination of decrypted Soviet archives years later proved McCarthy was correct!) One ominous episode of See It Now examined the dangers of cigarettes--while the chain-smoking Murrow puffed away on his indispensible Camels. Murrow said he couldn't possibly go more than 30 minutes without a cigarette. He died in 1965, two days after his 57th birthday, of lung cancer. He was featured on a 29-cent stamp in 1994. The original stamp design showed him with a cigarette in his hand. It was rejected.
