Mike Wallace Dies at 93


Born Myron Leon Wallace, Mike Wallace died on Saturday, April 7, 2012.

Spanning decades in the media, Mike Wallace was an award-winning American journalist, game show host, actor, and one of the original correspondents for CBS' 60 Minutes.

Some of Mike Wallace’s longtime colleagues gathered today on “CBS This Morning” to remember the iconic “60 Minutes” journalist, who died on Saturday at age 93. Wallace’s hard-hitting interviewing style came to define “60 Minutes” for decades. No doubt, we’ll see numerous tributes to this news reporter and TV legend for many days to come.

Wallace is famous for interviewing many impressive interviews. Wallace's professional honors include at least 20 Emmy Awards, among them a report just weeks before the 9/11 terrorist attacks for an investigation on the former Soviet Union's smallpox program and concerns about terrorism. He has also won three Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards, three George Foster Peabody Awards, a Robert E. Sherwood Award, a Distinguished Achievement Award from the University of Southern California School Of Journalism and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in the international broadcast category. In September 2003, Wallace received a Lifetime Achievement Emmy, his 20th. Most recently, on October 13, 2007, Wallace was awarded the University of Illinois Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Journalism.

But here’s a lesson learned... Wallace's youngest son (who followed in his father's footsteps as a journalist), Chris Wallace, described the last few days of the TV celebrity by saying “The interesting thing is that he never mentions ’60 Minutes.’ It’s as if it didn’t exist. It’s as if that part of his memory is completely gone. The only thing he really talks about is family – me, my kids, my grandkids, his great-grandchildren. There’s a lesson there. This is a man who had a fabulous career and for whom work always came first. Now he can’t even remember it.”

I don’t think anyone on their death bed has ever said “Gee, I wish I spent more time at work!” When mortality inches to a close, more often than not, people cherish their relationships, not their belongings. Family tops the list of things truly important in life.

Now go and hug your loved ones.
