Charles Kuralt and CBS On the Road bus

CHARLES KURALT SHOULD BE REMEMBERED. He gave us stories of hope and of unheralded heroes. His more than 600 episodes of "On the Road," filed from every state in America, punctuated the daily barrage of riots, wars and demonstrations on the nightly news. "Two-minute cease-fires," Time magazine called them. We should remember Charles Kuralt for his rich, mahogany voice and slow talking that brought us the relaxed pace of "Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt." And for his seven best-selling books. So many stories. So many memories.

"I objected to doing the 'On the Road' pieces at first . . . but with the very first piece he did, I was convinced that we better get them on the air."—Walter Cronkite

"One of his great tricks was to have three offices. There was no finding him, and that was exactly the way he wanted it."—Peter Freundlich, "Sunday Morning"

"Charles sometimes played down his television pieces as unimportant or fluff. But he really wanted to communicate to us all that there is hope. How in the world can you call that unimportant?"—Wallace Kuralt, Brother

"The flash was still blazing in my eyes, and I looked up and jokingly asked, 'Who do you really like, Charlie?' And he said, 'You.' That's when I fell in love with Charlie Kuralt."—Barbara Simmons Hannah, first girlfriend

"When we hung up, he said, 'I love you, buddy.' And that was the last time we spoke. He had no premonition that the end was that near."—Loonis McGlohon, friend
