“Pioneering CBS News correspondent George Herman, who was the longest-serving host of the Sunday morning public affairs show ‘Face the Nation,’ died on Tuesday at age 85, the network said,” Reuters reports.
TV Week leads with the fact that Herman was “the first CBS News correspondent to file reports from abroad that included audio and video.”
“George Herman was a terrific reporter and an even better person,” Bob Schieffer said in a statement (via the Wash Post.) “He was the epitome of what a CBS News correspondent should be — smart, thoughtful, fair and courageous.”
