Schorr muses on news as he enters his ninth decade
It seems as if I've been listening to National Public Radio's Daniel Schorr forever. Schorr is about to turn 90. I'm a little younger. (smile) So, indeed, I have known the presence of this celebrated journalist all my life.
Schorr, the surviving member of Edward R. Murrow's legendary CBS team, was well into his news career when I was born. He eventually left CBS when, at the request of Ted Turner, Schorr helped to create the Cable News Network. He went on to work as CNN's senior correspondent. During my own career in public radio, the Schorr's familiar voice was ever-present.
Even as he approaches 90, Schorr shows no signs of letting up. The man described as "the last sage" took time out of his schedule recently to talk with Washington Jewish Week.
