That's right! The dude who brought down a failing airplane into the Hudson River is joining CBS news as an aviation and safety expert!
That's fantastic, Sully Sullenberger totally deserves the recognition. And with his quick thinking and know how of how to bring a huge failing airplane down safely, we feel like he's probably the most qualified for this for sure!
Here's what his new family had to say:
Describing him as a "genuine hero," CBS News chairman and 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager said the ex-pilot with nearly 20,000 hours of service will help viewers "better understand the stories involving safety and air travel that seem to pop up all the time."
"He is a remarkable person who has great ability to turn his significant experience into useful insights," he added, nothing that Sullenberger will provide analysis of aviation safety and contribute to CBS News broadcasts and platforms across the news division.
All we have to say about this is… Fab! Great news, Sully!
