Legendary 60 Minutes Anchor Mike Wallace Dead at 93 (VIDEO)

Mike Wallace one of the pioneers in TV journalism passed away yesterday he was 93. Wallace was one of the original anchors when 60 minutes began and continued until 2006.

"All of us at CBS News and particularly at 60 Minutes owe so much to Mike. Without him and his iconic style, there probably wouldn't be a 60 Minutes. There simply hasn't been another broadcast journalist with that much talent. It almost didn't matter what stories he was covering, you just wanted to hear what he would ask next. Around CBS he was the same infectious, funny and ferocious person as he was on TV. We loved him and we will miss him very much,"
-Jeff Fager, Chairman CBS News and Executive Producer of 60 Minutes
