  • At age 14, he was a radio commentator for minor-league baseball and football games in Charlotte, NC; that same year, he won the American Legion "Voice of Democracy" essay contest, which earned him a trip to Washington, D.C., to meet President Harry Truman. His entry was read on CBS radio by Edward R. Murrow. Won a 1956 Ernie Pyle Memorial Award for the human-interest columns he wrote for the Charlotte News. Joined CBS News as a writer in 1957 at age 22; two years later, he was promoted and became the network's youngest correspondent ever. Logged more than a million miles while reporting On the Road pieces, which began airing on CBS News in 1967. Won 13 Emmys, a 1995 Columbia-DuPont Journalism Award and 1985's Broadcaster of the Year Award from the International Radio and Television Society. Honored in March 2000 by the University of North Carolina with the dedication of the Charles Kuralt Learning Center, which features the contents of his Manhattan office.
