Nearly six months after Walter Cronkite's death, his voice is leaving the "CBS Evening News."

According to a story in Calendar, Cronkite's introduction of anchor Katie Couric was replaced Monday by a voice-over featuring actor Morgan Freeman. Cronkite's voice was kept on the air even after his death July 17.
