What is wrong with people who are trying to reach the 55+ crowd? Do they not have a clue?
Retirement Living TV – a network aimed that age group – has released more details about Walter Cronkite and their Daily Cafe Show.
Walter “I Cry At Moon Landings” Cronkite.
He could be my Dad. Easily!
I barely remember him as an anchor, because retired 26 years ago. That’s long enough for him to fade from my memory. He was anointed by the pundits of the time (TV Guide probably) as the most trusted face in America.
That means that people his age and older had this perception.
Younger boomers probably don’t ever recall seeing him as anchor at the Tiffany network.
That doesn’t stop him from thinking he has something of interest to say.
“I am impressed with Retirement Living TV’s mission to serve America’s seniors with programming that is intelligent and informational. I look forward to sharing my insights about our nation’s top stories with the Daily Cafe audience,” said Walter Cronkite.
His son, Walter III, will produce the segments for his Dad. The segments will be introduced by another legend in television journalism, Katie Couric. Obviously CBS has their hands all over this deal.
“Hey dad, tell me about the olden days.”
“Why sure son, pull up to the flat panel, hi-def, 5.0 surround sound, and let me recount that moon landing.”
Obscure cable television. Where legends go to die.
Here’s Katie make fun of Dan Rather messing with his coat, while she messes around with her coat, hair, producers, etc. Rather of course is on HDTV network.
