Mike Wallace Dies At Age 93

Venerable CBS newsman Mike Wallace died last night at the age of 93.
A special program dedicated to Wallace will be broadcast on 60 Minutes next Sunday, April 15. Wallace was as famous as the leaders, newsmakers and celebrities who suffered his blistering interrogations, winning awards and a reputation for digging out the hidden truth on Sunday nights in front of an audience that approached 40 million at broadcast television's peak. Wallace played a huge role in 60 Minutes' rise to the top of the ratings to become the number-one program of all time, with an unprecedented 23 seasons on the Nielsen annual top 10 list -- five as the number-one program.
I liked Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes. But it's 1967's The Homosexuals that will be his legacy for me.
