In Memory: Don Hewlett


He was the creator of the longest running news program in prime time, CBS’ “60 Minutes.” Don Hewlett, through his creation of this program, introduced a new concept: the weekly television news magazine. These shows brought people and stories from around the world into our living room. Don Hewlett, along with people like Andy Rooney and Robert Novack (who both also recently passed away), are the pioneers of modern TV news coverage as we know it today. Don Hewlett will be missed, though he lives on through the show he created, “60 Minutes.” Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hewlett family as they go through this time of grief.
