    CBS news legend Morley Safer, dead at 84

    Legendary “60 Minutes” correspondent Morley Safer has died at age 84.

    His death comes just days after
    he formally retired after 46 seasons with the program.

    Safer is among the household names – along with the late Mike Wallace, Harry Reasoner, Ed Bradley, Bob Simon, and Andy Rooney, as well as Steve Kroft, Lesley Stahl and several others – who made “60 Minutes” a nationally celebrated treasure.

    (...)

    “It’s the range, I think, that is most impressive about Morley,” Jeff Fager, executive producer of “60 Minutes,”
    said in a special that aired last Sunday, celebrating Safer’s distinguished career. “I mean, I don’t think anybody in the history of broadcast journalism has a body of work as significant, as varied, as large and as impressive as Morley Safer.

    NEW YORK - CBS says veteran journalist and "60 Minutes" correspondent Morley Safer has died at age 84.

    Safer was equally at home reporting on social injustices, abstract art and war-time atrocities...

    Yes, this is sad to hear!!!
    RIP Morley Safer!!

    ETA:
    When I saw his face on TV the other day I thought they were announcing that he died.
    My heart skipped a beat. When I saw he was retiring, I felt so much relief.
    Now I feel sad.
    I grew up with him on TV.
    RIP Morley.
