Personal Quote:

[on surprise expressed when he retired in 2006] Let's face it. I'm not 85 anymore. See more »


Despite limiting Wallace's workload on 60 Minutes (1968), which began in 2003, he had found it difficult to remain idle, and had 11 original reports on the show, including interviews that had ranged, in typical Wallace fashion, from talking international politics with Mr. Putin to talking steroids with Jose Canseco.
