Wallace dies – interviewed Thorson

Posted by wlpo on April 8, 2012

A spokesman says CBS newsman Mike Wallace, famed

for his tough interviews on “60 Minutes,” has died. He was 93. Wallace was on the staff of “60 Minutes” when it began in 1968, and was one of its mainstays from then on. He retired as a regular correspondent in 2006 but continued contributing occasional reports. Wallace was known for spending hours preparing for interviews and for his skeptical follow-up questioning. Twelve years ago, our Rod Thorson was interviewed by Mike Wallace for a “60 Minutes” piece on the Farm Bureau. Rod will talk about his experience Monday morning here on AM 1220 WLPO.
