I will most definitely miss Mr. Schorr every Saturday morning on Weekend Edition.
In addition, Scott Simon’s personal remembrance of Mr. Schorr.
Around the NPR hallways over the past 10 years and some, it’s been the tendency to think of him as a sweet old grandfather. That’s not how [Mike] Wallace remembered him. “He’s never been sweet,” he said.
“There was not a lot of small talk in Dan,” Wallace said. “And Dan had told me that. He had come the hard way, so to speak, and he wanted to make a name for himself in broadcasting, in news and he did not suffer fools gladly and he was not particularly interested in nonsense or pablum.”?
