Ralph Grizzle: Remembering Charles Kuralt

Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Commissioned by his alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, to gather and compile an oral history of fellow alum Charles Kuralt, Grizzle produced this sweet, lovely homage to the traveling CBS news correspondent. Having interviewed nearly 100 people for the bookAincluding Kuralt's first girlfriend, his best friend from sixth through 12th grades and colleagues like Walter Cronkite and Andy RooneyAGrizzle is quick to point out that this is not a biography but a chronologically arranged collection of verbal reminiscences, keen glimpses into the life of a remarkably optimistic man. A newsman himself, Grizzle does not dissect and analyze every sticky detail of Kuralt's life and career, but honors and celebrates a journalist who represents, for him, the best in the business. All of the people he talked to report their high regard for Kuralt's maturity, seriousness and gift with words. Even as a boy, Kuralt had a resonant voice, considered himself a reporter and dreamed of heading up the New York Times. Grizzle devotes a chapter to each person with whom he spoke and links every anecdote with an insight from Kuralt's collection of personal letters and articles, A Life on the Road. For fans of On the Road who still admireAand missAKuralt's faith in humanity and the simple pleasures he enjoyed and shared, this is a welcome commemoration. 95 b&w photos. (July) Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Review "[a] sweet, lovely homage . . . a welcome commemoration." -- Publishers Weekly, June 12, 2000 Grizzle has produced a colorful and highly readable account of the life of a genuine American bard who simply permitted himself "to be detoured." Consequently, Charles Kuralt, as a long-time colleague put it, discovered "what was best and most true about the rest of us." -- Michael J. Healey, articles editor, Hemispheres, United Airlines in-flight magazine Its a life story told in vignettes, revealed through the voices of scores of friends, family members, colleagues. Grizzle was thorough, talking with nearly 100 people and seeking out dozens of rarely seen photographs. Together, they weave a history of a man who grew far beyond his roots but, in the end, was still a boy from North Carolina. -- Our State, by Betty Work --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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." And for his seven best-selling books. So many stories. So many memories.
