About This Event

Walter Cronkite joined CBS News when television was in its infancy. By the time he retired in 1981, television news was a staple of national life, and he was the most trusted man in America. Cronkite’s retirement marked the end of one era and the beginning of another. By the time he died in 2009, broadcast news was in the throes of a revolution and mainstream television journalists had lost much of their credibility. Join historian Mary Jo Binker for a look at the glory days of television news and a discussion of the modern media landscape. Join Kendal at Home for a look at the glory days of television news and a discussion of the modern media landscape led by Mary Jo Binker, consulting editor for the Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project at George Washington University and an adjunct professor of history at George Mason University. About Kendal at Home: A Quaker-based not-for-profit organization, Kendal at Home offers you autonomy, dignity and peace of mind, while providing immediate flexibility, choices, and financial protection. Kendal at Home is an innovative program focusing three areas: care management, care coverage and planning for healthy aging.
