Famed CBS Journalist Mike Wallace Dies At 93 | Fox News
Has been with 60 Minutes since 1968. A pioneer in journalisum.
A tenacious interviewer and journalist who had integrity even when his vision was clouded or wrong.
He was an icon in the industry. He will be missed. RIP
Early in his career, Wallace announced for the radio action shows Ned Jordan, Secret Agent, Sky King and The Green Hornet.
He was also a radio game how host for (Information Please).
Wallace announced wrestling in Chicago in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
During the 1950s, Wallace hosted a number of game shows, including The Big Surprise, Who's the Boss? and Who Pays?. Early in his career Wallace was not known primarily as a news broadcaster. It was not uncommon during that period for newscasters (the term then used) to announce, do commercials and host game shows; Douglas Edwards, John Daly, John Cameron Swayze and Walter Cronkite hosted game shows as well.
This guy did a lot, not just news.
I truly enjoyed Mr. Wallace. Rest in peace, Sir.
