Walter Cronkite was a famous American anchorman of CBS. He was in purgatory in the episode "Dead Celebrities". He was first heard talking to a nurse telling her and the boys that Michael Jackson wouldn't admit to his death and that was keeping everyone stranded in purgatory. Like everyone else on the plane he thought sitting on a plane doing nothing was bad enough without Billy Mays selling his products. But when the plane went to Hell, he reacted badly, like the other passengers. He now resides in Hell.
He appeared as an old man, with thick gray eyebrows and a gray mustache.He wears a black suit with a green, black striped tie.
He appears to be irritated by Michael Jackson's refusal to accept that he's dead, although this isn't abnormal, as the rest of the celebrities were irritated as well.
