Robert TroutAge: 91
broadcast journalist whose career began in the 1930s and didn't end until two weeks before his death. He was referred to as the “iron man” for his diligent yet fluid reporting. Known for his extemporaneous coverage of events as they unfolded, Trout reported on D-Day for more than seven hours straight. He coined the term “fireside chats” to describe President Franklin Roosevelt's weekly addresses. Trout worked for CBS for almost his entire career and was one of the members of Edward R. Murrow's pioneering news division at CBS.Died: Manhatttan, Nov. 14, 2000
