Mike Wallace, the long time journalist at CBS News, passed away Sunday morning at the age of 93.
Wallace’s passing was reported by Face the Nation host Bob Scheiffer at the beginning of the program, who said he died in New Haven, Connecticut with his family.
Wallace was apart of 60 Minutes since the inception from 1968 to his semi-retirement in 2006, helping shape the program into a prominent newsmagazine telecast. He was reportedly ill for years before his passing.
Some 60 plus years in the business, the man who put 60 Minutes on the map will be missed. The AP's wrapup of Wallace's life is here:
Amazing stuff. There will never be anyone quite like him, and that's unfortunate.
