CBS News

In the midst of daily crises, the heartwarming program segment, On The Road With Charles Kuralt, heard and seen on The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite, gives to millions of viewers choice bits of Americana: glimpses of a hidden canyon garden; a corn cob pipe factory, a story of the vanishing lobster; a ride on the Wabash Cannonball, the Louisiana school of three students, or the battle of the cable cars. For these nostalgic vignettes, this Peabody Award to Charles Kuralt for television news.
