It may be hard to believe, but CBS’ venerable newsmagazine “60 minutes” has been on the air more than 40 years, and has never had a legal analyst. That is changing, as the program announced that Andrew Cohen will be joining the program as its legal analyst.
According to CBS “in his new assignment, Cohen will help 60 Minutes correspondents, producers and executives with law-related stories, including deciphering legal documents, providing sources from the legal community, and otherwise guiding the program’s coverage of legal events and issues.”
Cohen has been with CBS News since 1997, and is currently senior legal analyst and legal editor for CBS News Radio, a role in which he will continue.
