Michael Freedman: Held Top Positions at UPI and CBS Radio

From a Washington Post obit by Matt Schudel headlined “Michael Freedman, radio executive and university official, dies at 71”:

Michael Freedman, a broadcast journalist who, as a top executive at the CBS radio network, produced some of Walter Cronkite’s final broadcasts and later was a university administrator and lecturer, died in Alexandria, Va.

Mr. Freedman was drawn to radio from childhood, listening to baseball broadcasts of his hometown Detroit Tigers. “People have deep-seated reasons for going into radio,” he told the Detroit Jewish Weekly. “It’s dramatic and intense. You live for it.”
