First CNN chief anchor Bernard Shaw dead at 82

Bernard Shaw, CNN's first chief anchor in 1980, has died at the age of 82.

His death was due to pneumonia and was unrelated to Covid-19, according to reports.

"The longtime journalist was known for remaining calm under frightening circumstances, including his reporting from Baghdad during the first Gulf War as explosions could be heard and seen in the city," USA Today reported.

"Shaw was a U.S. Marine who was also a reporter for CBS and ABC News before being chief anchor at CNN when it began in 1980," it added.

In addition to covering the world's top stories, Shaw moderated a 1988 presidential debate between George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis.

Shaw's decades of journalism remind the nation of a time when the news was not left or right, but simply news, informing Americans and the world of the day's top issues.
