Mike Wallace is 90 Today!

May 10th, 2008


The Archive of American Television wishes Mike Wallace a happy birthday as the veteran newsman turns 90. Wallace spent his early years as an announcer and actor in radio and television. In the early 1950s he often appeared as an actor in the dramatic anthologies of the day including Suspense and Studio One. When he began to do the nightly news for the Du Mont network and then his subsequent Night Beat interview program, he solidified his reputation as a probing journalist that he brought most famously to 60 Minutes.

The Archive interviewed Mike Wallace for three hours in 1998. Click here to access his complete Archive interview.
