#13653: CBS EVENING NEWS WITH WALTER CRONKITE, THE
1962-05-11, CBS, min.
Walter Cronkite, Thomas Dodd

April 16th, 1962 - March 6, 1981

On April 16th, 1962, Walter Cronkite made his debut as the anchor of the CBS Evening News replacing Douglas Edwards. He was not only the anchorman for the network newscast, but also served as its "managing editor." the dual position gave him considerable latitude in the selection, timing and arrangement of the day's news stories. It was during  Cronkite's early says at anchor that the nightly broadcasts expanded from fifteen to thirty minutes. The first half-hour show aired September 2, 1963, a week ahead of NBC's Huntley-Brinkley first expanded newscast and featured a special interview with President John F. Kennedy.

Color broadcasts of the evening news began early in 1966, about two months after NBC's. During this year most Network television transitioned from Black And White to Color.  

From the late 1960's until his retirement in 1977, Eric Sevareid commentated on The CBS Evening News. 

NOTE:
Moving images of Walter Cronkite reading the news in his studio every night for six years (1962–August 2, 1968) are mostly gone and not extant in any broadcast form. Exceptions are his coverage of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962 and the November 1963 events in Dallas, Texas: the JFK assassination, the shootings of police officer J. D. Tippit and Lee Oswald and all three funerals, as well as his introduction of the Beatles and his criticism of the Vietnam War.
Douglas Edwards anchored the live five-minute segment The CBS Afternoon News five afternoons a week between 1962 and 1966. He started the segment immediately after the twenty-five minute broadcast of the Goodson-Todman game show To Tell The Truth. Not one second from four years' worth of The CBS Afternoon News was preserved in any way.
Archival Television Audio original off the air sound recordings of network and local television news broadcasts, pre-1968, are extremely rare and not preserved at The Library of Congress, Paley Center for Media or UCLA Film & TV Archive.


Communist push deepens into Laos, the Senate led by Senator Thomas Dodd investigates sex and violence in TV programs such as the CBS drama, "Route 66," stock market reversal for the sixth day in a row, future planetary vehicles discussed by space expert.

Partial Transcript:

 Walter Cronkite: "Good Evening from the CBS News Headquarters in New York."  

Announcer: "This is the Evening News Edition of CBS News with Walter Cronkite. Brought to you by Dristan.

WC: " Capturing the world attention caused by her death. Even the Russians today sat in judgement calling her a victim of Hollywood. In Hollywood today a team of doctors and psychiatrists were still trying to determine exactly what she was a victim of. Her own hand or an accident? But the coroners inquest can only tell us how Marilyn Monroe died, and not why? Why with everything to live for with fame and fortune in their grasp are so many of our movie queens desperately unhappy. 

By closed circuit television  I asked that question  to Miss Kim Novak in Hollywood this afternoon.

Kim Novak responds and discusses her insight with Walter Cronkite in a four minute segment.
