Mike Wallace Dies at 93 Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Apr 8, 2012, 08:47 PM
Mike Wallace, a star reporter for the CBS news program 60 minutes, died on Easter Sunday in Connecticut. He earned legendary fame as a tough-nosed old-school reporter not afraid to ask the tough questions.

According to the USA Today, “in a career that spanned seven decades, Wallace evolved from a radio entertainer in the 1940s and TV game-show host in the 50s to the no-nonsense inquisitor of CBS’ top-rated news magazine, 60 Minutes, which launched in 1968.”

He utilized his trademark reporting style – steely questioning, skeptical debating and ambush interviews on unsuspecting targets well into his 80s.

As reported by the USA Today, “Wallace died on Sunday night at a care facility in New Canaan, Conn., nearly a month shy from his 94th birthday. No cause of death was reported but he had been in declining health following triple bypass surgery in 2008.”

He failed to attend the January memorial service for Andy Rooney, another 60 Minutes legend, who died last November at 92-years-old.
