Mike Wallace dead: ’60 Minutes’ legend was 93 

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/cutline/mike-wallace-dead-60-minutes-legend-93-153527720.html

Mike Wallace, the legendary CBS News broadcaster, interviewer and "60 Minutes" icon, has died, the network said Sunday. He was 93.

Wallace, whose "probing, brazen style made his name synonymous with the tough interview -- a style he practically invented for television more than half a century ago" died "peacefully" on Saturday night, surrounded by family in New Canaan, Conn., CBS said.
