Longtime CBS News correspondent Morley Safer died Thursday morning.

When I say long time, I mean 52 years — 46 of them at “60 Minutes.”

He talked to just about everyone about just about everything, including Bernie Madoff’s wife Ruth, after the former was sentenced to 150 years in prison for running the bigggest Ponzi scheme ever. Check out that tape above.

I used to watch him every Sunday night when I was a kid.
