If you have ever watched 60 Minutes then you probably seen Mike Wallace interview someone. Interview was probably putting it lightly he didn’t just interview people it was more like an interrogation at times. During the height of his career if you were someone in the news the scariest words during that time were probably “Mike Wallace is here to see you”.
Wallace was born Myron Wallace on May 9, 1918, in Brookline, Mass. He began his news career in Chicago in the 1940s, first as radio news writer for the Chicago Sun and then as reporter for WMAQ. He started at CBS in 1951.
He was married four times. In 1986, he wed Mary Yates Wallace, the widow of his close friend and colleague, Ted Yates, who had died in 1967. Besides his wife, Wallace is survived by his son, Chris, a stepdaughter, Pauline Dora, and stepson Eames Yates.
R.I.P. Mr Wallace you will be missed .
