Famed CBS journalist Mike Wallace dies at 93

NEW YORK – Legendary CBS journalist Mike Wallace, the “60 Minutes” correspondent whose probing interviews were a veritable right of passage for newsmakers the world over, has died at 93.

Wallace, who won his 21st and final Emmy Award at 89, died Saturday in the New Canaan, Conn., care facility where he had lived the last few years of his life.

The veteran newsman built a reputation as a fearless interviewer, known for asking skeptical follow-up questions and researching his subjects in and out.

“It almost didn't matter what stories he was covering, you just wanted to hear what he would ask next," Jeff Fager, CBSNews chairman and executive producer of “60 Minutes," said in a statement.

The "60 Minutes" journalist's reputation as a pitiless inquisitor was so fearsome that it was often said that the words “Mike Wallace is here to see you” were the most dreaded in the English language.
