Remembering Mike Wallace

We take 60 minutes to look back on the amazing career of Mike Wallace.

For years and years, the ticking stopwatch came every Sunday night with the big familiar voice right behind it announcing “I’m Mike Wallace.”

“60 Minutes” and the CBS newsman were inseparable for decades. Deep into his 80s, Mike Wallace kept putting the great and grand, con men and killers on the spot with his no-hold-barred interviews and his high-drama style. He was the emblem of a high-flying era in American TV journalism.

Mike Wallace died this weekend at 93. We last talked in 2005.

This hour, On Point: we share again our last interview with broadcast great, Mike Wallace.
