"60 Minutes" Legend Mike Wallace Won't Return to Television


Veteran “60 Minutes” newsman Mike Wallace will not be returning to television after undergoing triple bypass surgery in January, according to his son, “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. The elder Wallace, who turned 90 in May, is now recovering from a recent fall in his New York home. He was hospitalized because he is taking a blood thinner and doctors wanted to make sure “that he didn’t bleed out,” Chris told U.S. News & World Report’s Paul Bedard. Chris said his father’s heart “is working just fine” but that he was finished with TV and plans to spend the summer at his home in Martha’s Vineyard. The elder Wallace was on the “60 Minutes” staff when the program debuted in 1968. He retired as a fulltime correspondent in 2006 but continued to work for CBS News.
