Wallace Retiring From '60 Minutes' - New York Times
NYT: Mike Wallace, at 88, retiring: "After serving as a correspondent on '60 Minutes' since its inception in September 1968, Mr. Wallace said today that he had decided to retire this spring, at the end of the current television season. He said that the move had come at his initiative, and that 'CBS is not pushing me.'
'As I approach my 88th birthday, it's become apparent to me that my eyes and ears, among other appurtenances, aren't quite what they used to be,' said Mr. Wallace, whose birthday is May 9. 'The prospect of long flights to wherever in search of whatever are not quite as appealing.'"
