Sunday, September 13th 2009, 4:00 AMWalter Cronkite may live on - on the Web.
We hear billionaire Warren Buffett is among potential investors who've expressed interest in the Cronkite Channel, an Internet news site that would uphold the values of the broadcast legend.
Cronkite's longtime chief of staff Marlene Adler tells us the newsman was developing the idea before his death at 92 in July. "Walter had great concerns about the Internet because so much of the instant communication wasn't attributed," says Adler. "But it was inevitable that the man who pioneered radio and television would finish his career with the digital medium."
Adler says the Cronkite Channel would be less about breaking news than aggregating stories to educate voters. But she cautions, "It's way premature to talk about. It's just a concept. His estate would have to license his name."Related Links
