Rather exit 'sad,' Wallace says

21 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Calling it a "sad, bloody story," veteran 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace expressed regret about Dan Rather's departure from CBS but said Rather wasn't finished yet. "You wait and see, he's going to find his place," Wallace told a packed house Wednesday at the annual conference of PromaxBDA in New York. "We're going to be hearing from Dan. He's a superb reporter." Wallace and CNN host Larry King received the organizations' TV Century Awards. Wallace has in the past suggested that Rather should have resigned for his role in the discredited 60 Minutes Wednesday report on President Bush's military career that led to the firing of one producer and the forced resignations of four executives. But Wallace was much more conciliatory Wednesday, a day after Rather and CBS News parted ways. »

Cooper working part-time at '60 Minutes'

8 May 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- CNN's Anderson Cooper will become a 60 Minutes contributor in the fall, reporting four or five stories to the landmark CBS show. Cooper will remain the headliner of Anderson Cooper 360, the two-hour late-night news show on CNN. He will contribute the 60 Minutes stories using a rotating group of producers while on his days off from CNN, with his first airing on CBS sometime after the new season begins in September. It's not the first time Cooper has worked with CBS. The former ABC News correspondent contributed stories to 60 Minutes II while it was on, and 60 Minutes had always wanted to retain him somehow. »

Not Schieffer's favorite year; CBS loved it

10 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- When Bob Schieffer took over at the CBS Evening News a year ago tonight, it was supposed to be only a temporary assignment. The CBS News veteran had long ago thought the route to the anchor chair was closed to him. He had been passed over in 1980 when CBS looked to replace Walter Cronkite, and Dan Rather spent 24 years in the job. Schieffer worked in Washington, anchored the weekend evening news and, beginning in 1993, moderated Face the Nation. So he was as surprised as anyone when CBS chief Leslie Moonves asked him to come to New York to right the ship after the 60 Minutes Wednesday scandal and Rather's departure. But he did it, knowing his network needed him. »
