60 Minutes legend, Mike Wallace, has died at the age of 93. The New York Times reports,
His death was announced on CBS by the anchor of its Sunday morning program, Charles Osgood. The network did not immediately specify when or where he died. Mr. Wallace had been ill for several years.
As one of the original correspondents and hosts of “60 Minutes,” which was started in 1968, Mr. Wallace helped to establish the television newsmagazine format. “60 Minutes” is now the most popular such program on American television.
Mr. Wallace was perhaps best known for ambush interviews of crooks and cheats.
