Former colleagues of 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace are sharing their memories of the famed late journalist, who passed away on Saturday night at 93. Longtime colleague Morley Safer, who has co-hosted the legendary news program with Wallace since the early ’70s, put together a video tribute to his deceased partner.
The video features dozens of clips of Wallace doing what he did best: interviewing the most notable names of the 20th century, including figures from the White House to Hollywood. Safer offers a glimpse into Wallace’s list of interview subjects: Jimmy Carter, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, the Reagans, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., Vladimir Putin, Yasser Arafat, Johnny Carson, Carol Burnett, Barbra Streisand and Leonard Bernstein. Watch the CBS News tribute below:
