Primarily known for his work on the long-running CBS magazine series 60 Minutes (1968-2006), Mike Wallace (1918-2012) developed a reputation as an inquisitorial interviewer, authoritative documentary narrator and powerful investigative reporter. Wallace, who began his career as a Chicago newspaper columnist, joined CBS News in 1951, remaining with the network until 1955 and then returning as a news correspondent in 1963. Wallace's early television credits included Night Beat (1956-1957), The Mike Wallace Interview (1957-1960), and the Peabody-winning Biography (1959-1961). Wallace was no stranger to controversy: his 1972 he was sued by General William Westmoreland for claiming in 1982 that the general had manipulated Vietnam casualty figures; and he criticized his own network for delaying broadcast of an exposé on the tobacco industry. His longevity, celebrity and ability to land big interviews, however, made him one of the most important news figures in the history of television. Wallace earned many awards, including 20 Emmy Awards (he received the Lifetime Achievement Emmy in September 2003) and three Peabody Awards, and he was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1991. He has also written a number of books. In 2006, the year of his retirement, Wallace interviewed accused steroid-using baseball star Roger Clemens and Iranian President Ahmadinejad.
