Mike Wallace, a journalism pioneer known for his reporting on '60 Minutes' died at the age of 93 on April 7, according to the Associated Press. Wallace died at a care facility in New Canaan, Conn., where he had lived in recent years.
Wallace continued making news, doing '60 Minutes' interviews until heart surgery in 2008 forced him to slow down. He retired as a correspondent in 2006 but promised to still do occasional reports. In 2007 he profiled GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and interview with Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the assisted suicide doctor released from prison in 2007 who died last year.
The newscaster's career spanned 60 years. His 'extraordinary contribution as a broadcaster is immeasurable and he has been a force within the television industry throughout its existence,' Leslie Moonves, CBS Corp. president and CEO, said in a statement on April 8.
In 1986, he wed Mary Yates Wallace, the widow of his close friend and colleague, Ted Yates, who had died in 1967. Besides his wife, Wallace is survived by his son, Chris - who is also a broadcast journalist, a stepdaughter, Pauline Dora, and stepson Eames Yates.
