FROM Joe Saltzman
Remembering Norman Corwin Norman Corwin , the legendary writer of books and radio programs, died this week at the age of 101. Corwin, who spent his last years at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, started there in 1979, and he was writer in residence until the day of his death. He was originally recruited by Professor Joe Saltzman, who once wrote and produced news programs and documentaries for Channel 2, when it was known as KNXT.
