60 Minutes Creator Toying With ‘HewTube’ Idea

Don Hewitt, the legendary 84-year-old 60 Minutes creator, is calling on students from NYU and elsewhere to submit videos for a yet-to-be-titled online newsmagazine project the legendary is plotting.

Hewitt pitched his idea to a group of film students at NYU yesterday, according to the Village Voice, looking for one to three-minute stories about “whatever you think is important in the world, or are mad as hell about, or are moved or amused by.”

Hewitt, his son, Steven Hewitt, and ex-60 Minutes producer and documentarian Harry Moses are behind the project under the Hewitt Group banner.
