CBS to tribute Mike Wallace on ’60 Minutes’ April 15

Mike will be remembered.

Following his tragic passing this weekend at the age of 93, CBS News is going to be honoring their legendary “60 Minutes” newsman Mike Wallace in a big way next week.

The network announced Sunday that their will be a tribute to Wallace during their April 15 edition of their news magazine, and there would have been even more recognition of his body of work this week were it not for time restraints.

While we have already shared a video about some of Wallace’s best moments, we’ll now turn to some of the top names in news for their reaction via Twitter:

Piers Morgan – “RIP #MikeWallace – one of the greatest newsmen in TV history. Magnificent journalist.”
