Mad love for Walter Cronkite

CBS News will honour longtime legendary news anchor Walter Cronkite with a primetime special, "That's the Way It is: Celebrating Cronkite at 90", which airs this Friday, May 18 @ 8pm.

Couric will be in the roster of news stars -- as well as competitors Charles Gibson and Brian Williams -- who will be interviewed about the 91-year old Cronkite's legacy. Also appearing will be CBS News journalists Don Hewitt, Mike Wallace, Morley Safer and the man who replaced Cronkite in 1981, news anchor/reborn character actor, Dan Rather.

So too will be Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and Ted Koppel plus friends Spike Lee, George Clooney and Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire.
