60 Minutes will be heading deep into the heart of Texas next month.

Jeff Fager, the ep of CBS’s iconic newsmagazine, has been named a featured speaker at the 2018 South by Southwest conference, set to take place in Austin March 9 – 18.

60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan, who calls Texas home, will be conducting the interview with her boss. It’s part of 60 Minutes’ 50th anniversary.


Fager and Logan aren’t the only TV newsers participating in SxSW. CNN chief international correspondent (and host of the new eponymous PBS series) Christiane Amanpour will be interviewed by Recode executive editor Kara Swisher.

Dan Harris, co-anchor of ABC’s Nightline and GMA weekend edition, is also a featured speaker.

Other speakers include Jose Andres, Lena Dunham, Ethan Hawke, Karlie Kloss, Spike Lee, Chelsea Manning, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright of HBO’s Westworld.
