60 Minutes star Mike Wallace dies

 Mike Wallace, the grand inquisitor of CBS’s 60 Minutes news show who once declared there was “no such thing as an indiscreet question,” has died at the age of 93, the network said on Sunday.
 Wallace died on Saturday evening with his family by his side at Waveny Care Center in New Canaan, Connecticut, where he spent the past few years, CBS said in a statement and on its Sunday morning news broadcast.
Wallace left his full-time role at 60 Minutes in 2006 after 38 years and was given the title correspondent emeritus and a part-time contributor role. His last interview was with Roger Clemens, the star baseball pitcher accused of steroid use, in 2008.
A special 60 Minutes program dedicated to Wallace will be aired April 15.
