Edward Roscoe Murrow, KBE (born Egbert Roscoe Murrow; April 25, 1908 – April 27, 1965) was an American broadcast journalist and war correspondent. He first gained prominence during World War II with a series of live radio broadcasts from Europe for the news division of CBS. During the war he recruited and worked closely with a team of war correspondents who came to be known as the Murrow Boys.

Murrow went to London in 1937 to serve as the director of CBS's European operations. The position did not involve on-air reporting; his job was persuading European figures to broadcast over the CBS network, which was in direct competition with NBC's two radio networks. During this time, he made frequent trips around Europe. In 1937, Murrow hired journalist William L. Shirer, and assigned him to a similar post on the continent Radio

The legendary Murrow’s Boys were all found by Murrow, starting in 1937. They included some of journalism’s most prominent figures, such as Eric Sevareid, William Shirer, Charles Collingwood, Larry LeSueur, Winston Burdette and Howard K. Smith. It was not our job to inspire people, to educate, to move them, Hottelet told The Hartford Courant in 2003. It was our job to tell them what was going on. Hottelet is survived by four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. His wife, Ann Delafield Hottelet, died in 2013. Watch Hottelet’s reporting on D-day here.

The group became known as Murrow’s Boys. Murrow gained his first taste of fame during the 1938 Anschluss, in which Adolf Hitler’s Germany annexed Austria. Murrow was in Poland arranging a broadcast of a children’s chorus when he got word from William Shirer of the annexation, and also learned that Shirer was unable to get the story out from Austrian state radio facilities. On April 15, 1945, Murrow reported on the liberation of the Buchenwald extermination camp in Germany. The broadcast was an example of his uncompromising journalistic style, which caused a great deal of controversy and won him a number of critics and enemies. Murrow's report described the emaciated physical state of the concentration camp prisoners who had survived. He also described "rows of bodies stacked up like cordwood" and refused to apologize for his words' harsh tone

Murrow recruited a number of newsmen and women to CBS during his years as a correspondent, European news chief, and executive. The "Boys" were his closest professional and personal associates. They achieved nationwide fame, and inadvertently became early examples of "celebrity journalism" in the days of radio and early television news. Several Murrow Boys were assigned to accompany Allied forces on D-Day. Hottelet rode along in a bomber over Utah Beach at H-Hour, the initial phase of the invasion. Collingwood and Gene Ryder covered Utah Beach, as did Larry LeSueur from a separate landing craft, while Downs covered Gold Beach.
