60 Minutes

CBS News

Few television presentations pack more into an hour than 60 Minutes, produced by CBS News under the capable hand of executive producer Don Hewitt, who has been at the helm of the program since its inception in September 1968. What 60 Minutes proves is that there exists a substantial and important audience for quality television journalism in this country. Co-editors are the distinguished CBS News Correspondents Mike Wallace, Dan Rather, and Morley Safer, who seem to make 60 Minutes stimulating, interesting, informative, and, yes, provocative. For the efforts of the entire team which guides this program to its highly rated place on the CBS Television Network, a Peabody Award.
