I have a routine on Saturday mornings. I fix coffee. I listen to Weekend Edition Saturday with Scott Simon. And one of the things I listen for each week is Simon’s weekly discussion with Daniel Schorr.
Simon tweeted a few minutes ago that “My longtime friend and colleague Dan Schorr has died. Please find a moment today to say goodbye to him today in your own way.”
On Saturday’s edition, I didn’t recall hearing Schorr. I kept waiting for it, and then the show was over, and no Daniel Schorr. I wonder, now, if Schorr, who was 93, was already ill and hospitalized.
I read one of Schorr’s books, Come To Think Of It, a few months ago.
I’ll miss hearing Daniel Schorr’s voice. I’ll miss his insights and his wisdom. Journalism has lost one of its giants.
