Charles Collingwood

From Wikipedia:

“Born in Three Rivers, Michigan, Collingwood graduated from Deep Springs College and Cornell University and in 1939 received a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford University. After working in London for United Press, Collingwood was hired by Edward R. Murrow during the Second World War (one of Murrow's Boys) and quickly became known as an urbane and spontaneously eloquent on-air journalist. He was part of a group of early television journalists that included Walter Cronkite, Eric Sevareid, and Murrow himself.”
