CBS News correspondent Mike Wallace has died at 93, reports CBS News. The longtime newsman was known for his merciless reporting and interviewing on "60 Minutes."
Wallace died Saturday night, according to CBS spokesman Kevin Tedesco.
Wallace retired as a regular correspondent in March 2006, but promised to do occasional stories and interviews for "60 Minutes," reports the Associated Press. He slowed down after his heart surgery in 2008.
Wallace was one of the first hired for "60 Minutes,'" which debuted in 1968.
