Veteran CBS journalist Mike Wallace died Saturday evening at the age of 93, CBS announced Sunday morning.
Wallace was on the founding staff of "60 Minutes" and quickly became known for his tough interviews.
"It was 65 years from Mike's first appearance on camera -- a World War II film for the Navy -- to his last television appearance, a '60 Minutes' interview with Roger Clemens, the baseball star trying to fight off accusations of steroid use," colleague Morley Safer wrote in a tribute on CBSNews.com.
Wallace contributed periodically to "60 Minutes" until 2008 after retiring as a regular correspondent in 2006.
