WASHINGTON (AP) Veteran reporter-commentator Daniel Schorr, whose hard-hitting reporting for CBS got him on President Richard Nixon's notorious "enemies list" in the 1970s, has died. He was 93.

NPR announced his death. Schorr had worked there as a commentator.

Schorr's more than six-decade career spanned the spectrum of journalism. He began in print, then moved to television where he spent 23 years with CBS News, and later worked as a senior news analyst for NPR.

Schorr not only covered the news as CBS' chief Watergate correspondent, but he also became part of the story. Hoping to beat the competition, he rushed to the air with Nixon's famous "enemies list" and began reading the list of 20. As he got to No. 17, he discovered his name.
