DescriptionStudent journalists now learning their trade by filing stories for Cronkite News were born long after Walter Cronkite (1916-2009) signed off the CBS Evening News in 1981. A part of Arizona State University’s Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications Cronkite News publishes news by student journalists on its own website and produces stories for the Associated Press McClatchy-Tribune News Service and about thirty newspapers in Arizona including the Arizona Republic. Most stories have an Arizona angle though they often have national implications.
