It is good to have the approval of a man like your-self. It offsets the many brickbats that are coming my way. Sincerely yours,". Kaltenborn (1878-1965, born Hans Kaltenborn in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) was chief news commentator for CBS (1929-1940), switching over to NBC in 1940. He was famed for his almost nonstop broadcasts during the 1938 Munich crisis, his reports from the European and Pacific fronts in WWII and his coverage of presidential campaigns beginning in 1932. Kaltenborn was a panelist on the NBC TV quiz show, Who Said That? in 1954. Lightly toned, stained, soiled and creased. Normal postal stamps, which touch typed letter but not signature.
