Wallace “Retiring:” Notes & Quotes

wallacemar144.jpg > Mike Wallace‘s biography

> Wallace will maintain an office on the same floor at CBS, “just around the corner from where I’ve holed up for the past 43 years.” Who gets his office?

> The LA Times Web site has a thorough story about his departure, including this: “Wallace has remained decidedly old-school. When he dictated his statement to a reporter today, he noted the punctuation and paragraph marks in the style of a reporter reading his copy from the scene of a story.”

> “It’s a testimony to the editors at 60 Minutes, I suppose, that we saw few signs of the physical decline that Mike Wallace says has led him to step down,” Aaron Barnhart says.

> Here is CBSNews.com’s story, which is mostly a rehash of the statements and his bio.
