Former CBS World News Roundup Anchor Bill Lynch Dies

Award-winning journalist Bill Lynch – former anchor of CBS News Radio’s “World News Roundup” – died on Tuesday in Lawrence, Kansas at the age of 77. Three years after getting out of the Army in 1968, Lynch joined WCBS Radio in New York City as a reporter and later as an assistant news director. He joined CBS News as a correspondent in 1981. In 1985, he became anchor of “World News Roundup” – a position he would hold until 1999.  Current “World News Roundup” anchor Steve Kathan says, “His booming voice and punchy writing style set him apart. He read and knew so much about so many issues and so many places. Bill Lynch was an influence on me and so many others who aimed to do what he could do.”
