Veteran Reporter Daniel Schorr Dies at 93

214rb.jpgLegendary newsman Daniel Schorr died this morning in Washington, D.C. after a brief illness. The NPR Senior News Analyst was 93. From the LA Times:

A working journalist for more than 60 years, the indefatigable Schorr was the last active member of Murrow’s Boys, the legendary group of journalists who worked at CBS News in the 1940s and ’50s under Edward R. Murrow. He was a high-profile CBS reporter for 23 years before leaving amid controversy in 1976.

In 1985, after several years at CNN, he joined National Public Radio, where as a senior news analyst he was heard regularly on the “Weekend Edition” and “Week in Review” programs.

NPR’s ‘All Things Considered’ has a lovely remembrance.
