Obama to attend Cronkite memorial

(CNN) - President Obama will be among the speakers at a memorial tribute to the late CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite on September 9 at Lincoln Center in New York, according to senior administration officials.

The event is expected to be a who's who of the media establishment, ranging from Katie Couric and Andy Rooney of CBS News to former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw. Cronkite, the legendary anchor once called the most trusted newsman in America, died on July 17.
