A Tribute to Charles Kuralt

Two days after his death last July 4, CBS News Sunday Morning bade farewell to Charles Kuralt simply by showing clips from his 40-year career. And yet, as a send-off, A Tribute to Charles Kuralt nicely distills the life’s work of this footloose correspondent best known for his folksy dispatches while on the road across America. Whether profiling a North Carolina man’s quiet crusade to provide a bike to every child in his town or pointing out an Alaskan bald eagle high in a tree, Kuralt told stories that never condescended to their subject or their audience. Until a more comprehensive ”tribute” comes along, this one will do. B
