In The News, One Last Time

Sometimes something is so familiar that you don't even notice it. It just becomes part of the wallpaper.

Such was the case with a voice familiar to anyone who grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons in the 1970's--Christopher Glenn of "In the News." "In the News" was a little one or two minute news vignette CBS plugged in between the cartoons to teach children about current events. I don't actually remember a single thing they showed on there, but the voice of Christopher Glenn and the theme "song" (though you can't really call it a song--it was really more of an annoying sound) are indelible.

Glenn died yesterday of liver cancer at 68. CBS News' website has a nice look back at his career.
