His Age in the Picture[edit]

The picture says that he is 72 but that is not possible because the article states that he died in 63. Either his date of death is wrong or the age in the caption should be changed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by VioletFem (talkcontribs) 17:21, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Posthumous controversy[edit]

So Kuralt didn't live up to the moral standards some people expected from him. Too bad. I agree that should be mentioned, but much shorter. His reputation is built on his work, not on his personal relations. I think two or three sentences should suffice. --Bernardoni (talk) 00:17, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

--WRONG. The controversy was MAJOR, and considering the fact so much of his reputation was built on reporting on simple values which made this country great, including family values, and shown on his "On the Road" segments, it is ENTIRELY relevant and worth major inclusion. There's no point trying to sweep it under the rug.

By the way, his wife, Suzanne "Petie" Baird Kuralt, was NOT his "estranged" wife. She was his wife all through the marriage up until his death. They didn't formally separate, much less divorce. She didn't know anything about Pat Baker until after Kuralt died. Petie was buried beside him when she died in 1999.--Susan Nunes 06 September 2009 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.36.204.109 (talk) 19:17, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

his reputation was built upon his journalism, not his personal life. This topic is overweighted in the biography, as per Bernardoni's sentiments.

The entire article is woefully lacking in sources, but the "Posthumous controversy" section contains some serious allegations (and based on what I remember, likely true) with no sources. This is shameful. Regardless of the accuracy of the information, it is more than a little serious (and possibly libelous) that there is nothing to back up this information. I know that Kuralt is deceased, which limits the applicability of WP:BLP, but he was a major public figure in recent times. I've placed a tag specific to that section. If there is no sourcing and no comments here within two weeks, I plan to remove the section. If anyone thinks he/she can find some sources within a reasonable period of time but you need more than two weeks, please leave a message. This can wait, but not for months.

ok, added some sources, instead of editing article talk, how about editing article? Accotink2 talk 01:17, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for added sources. BTW, I have no obligation to spend time editing Charles Kuralt. It took me 30 seconds to write the comment above. Your suggestion is duly noted, and dismissed. Cresix (talk) 01:29, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
funny, took me 5 minutes to find sources, not in response to the deletion threat above. Accotink2 talk 01:35, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
Good job. It takes me about that long to find sources in the articles I edit. BTW, last time I checked, sourcing is a Wikipedia policy, not a threat. Have a good day. Cresix (talk) 01:38, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
no actually WP:Before is policy, deleting unsourced contentious material is policy for BLP's WP:GRAPEVINE, not WP:BDP. nothing personal, deleting unnsourced material does not make the wiki "better". i was really talking to 71.36.204.109 above, who defended the material but did not source. deleting material on artificial deadlines is a threat. Accotink2 talk 15:16, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes, actually WP:V is a policy, one of the very foundations of Wikipedia. I don't believe I suggested that I would nominate the article for deletion. I believe you have taken your innuendo and false accusations a bit too far. At first I was willing to tolerate it as a normal overreaction. I now suggest that you drop the personal focus on me and instead focus on the article. If you need a warning to encourage you to stop, then please consider this your first warning about personal attacks. I typically don't respond directly to an editor's continued personal attacks and instead go to WP:ANI, so I likely will add no more comments here unless other editors have something to say relevant to the article. Cresix (talk) 16:00, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
CNN seems to me like a perfectly adequate source for WP:V. It would even be adequate if he were alive, though then there might be a question of whether it was germane to his career, or whether he was sufficiently important that such personal information was relevant in any case. This requirement is much relaxed once he is dead. But I changed the heading from Controversy to Personal life--I do not see it as a controversy in the usual sense. A more specific title is possible, if anyone can construct one without negative implications. Titles must be neutral. DGG ( talk ) 22:30, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Copyright problem[edit]

This article has been reverted by a bot to this version as part of a large-scale clean-up project of multiple article copyright infringement. (See the investigation subpage) This has been done to remove User:Accotink2's contributions as they have a history of extensive copyright violation and so it is assumed that all of their major contributions are copyright violations. Earlier text must not be restored, unless it can be verified to be free of infringement. For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions must be deleted. Contributors may use sources as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences or phrases. Accordingly, the material may be rewritten, but only if it does not infringe on the copyright of the original or plagiarize from that source. Please see our guideline on non-free text for how to properly implement limited quotations of copyrighted text. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously.

The CBS Morning News with Charles Kuralt and Diane Sawyer[edit]

       I do indeed remember Charles Kuralt hosting, by himself, the CBS Sunday Morning News,... but did he not also co-host the CBS (Regular) Morning News Show, with Diane Sawyer, in around 1980?  I seem to remember Charles had this job for a couple/few years, with Diane, until it's cancellation and replacement with another show...  Yet, *the same set* was saved for, and continued with, the Sunday Morning News, with Charles heading it (alone).  And that set still exists to this day (!), albeit in a somewhat rudimentary form.  Perhaps someone could correct me here, re the regular morning CBS program?  John G. Lewis (talk) 03:45, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Intimate Bookshop ownership[edit]

I worked at the Intimate Bookshop in Chapel Hill in the 1980's and Wallace Kuralt, brother of Charles, had an office there and was always referred to as the owner.--Marbus1 (talk) 01:44, 12 November 2013 (UTC)marbus1
