CBS News Correspondent Mike Wallace Passes Away At 93

Mike Wallace passes away

Aw. This is sad, but nobody can say this guy didn't live a good life!

60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace passed away on Saturday night at 93-years-old. The newsman was the first staff member on the CBS show when it began in 1968 and earned 21 Emmy awards before retiring in 2006.

His merciless reporting became part of major Hollywood productions like The Insider, in which Russell Crowe played tobacco industry whistle-blower Jeffrey Wigandwhere, who was interviewed by Wallace on 60 Minutes in 1995. The reporter was also a character in the stage production of Frost/Nixon.

He is survived by an outstanding legacy in journalism — including five Peabody awards — as well as a wife, a son, and two stepchildren.

Rest in peace, Mike!
