A memorial service will be held today at Lincoln Center in New York City for legendary broadcaster Walter Cronkite.

Jimmy Buffett will perform, as will Mickey Hart, drummer for the Grateful Dead.

The event will also be attended by several dignitaries, including President Obama and former President Clinton.

Buffett and Cronkite were close friends, and Jimmy even serenaded Cronkite in his final weeks.

Cronkite died July 17th at the age of 92.

You can view a live broadcast of the memorial beginning at 10:30 am at CBSNews.com, CBS.com, TV.com and ustream.com.
