One of my favorites…Morley Safer. Forty six seasons on 60 Minutes. He was due to retire and that was announced just last week.
He was born in Toronto…earned a Lifetime Achievement Emmy in 2009. He also collected 12 Emmy Awards, three Peabody Awards, two Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards, two George Polk Memorial Awards and the Paul White Award from the the Radio/Television News Directors Association.
It was one helluva career…he even caused change of the Army’s Rules of Engagement for which LBJ vilified him.
He asked the tough, hard questions. He kept them honest. He will be missed.
Morley Safer…may your memory be blessed.
