Who else remembers Dallas Townsend?
When I was growing up, my family and I would listen to the "CBS World News Roundup" on the morning radio, which was normally broadcast by Dallas Townsend.
He was quite noteworthy; here is his NY Times obituary. I knew he was no longer alive, but I didn't remember when he passed away.
Even in this era of the Internet, I couldn't find a color picture of him. Below are two black-and-whites, the latter with his notable contemporaries Douglas Edwards, Mike Wallace, and of course, Walter Cronkite.
I thought of him because I heard about the IPO of CBS Radio that will separate it from CBS Corp., as radio listenership declines. We live in changing times, don't we?
