NEW YORK (WFSB/AP) -

A spokesman says CBS newsman Mike Wallace, famed for his tough interviews on "60 Minutes," has died.

He was 93.

CBS spokesman Kevin Tedesco says Wallace died Saturday night.

Wallace was on the staff of "60 Minutes" when it began in 1968, and was one of its mainstays from then on.

He retired as a regular correspondent in 2006 but continued contributing occasional reports. His exclusive interview with pitcher Roger Clemens was broadcast in January 2008.

Wallace was known for spending hours preparing for interviews and for his skeptical follow-up questioning.

 He sure led a long life and did so much. I remember him on a show in 1951 called "Mike and Buff" --a kind of talk show that aired in California. We lived in the LA area for a year. and then I followed his talk shows and 60 minutes every week. I learned alot from that man . Wow, a huge piece of history.
