Longtime news anchor Walter Cronkite has died at the age of 92 after a long illness.   

We grabbed a historic piece of news footage on YouTube, Cronkite's live coverage of the assassination of  President John F. Kennedy.

I've pasted below the  news-breaking report by Katie Couric which broke into CBS just before 8:00 p.m. this evening.

Here's is the obit by Doug Martin in The Times.

Walter Cronkite, thank for your singular contribution to video journalism.
