The 73-year-old Kroft's last piece for the CBS News newsmagazine airs this Sunday. Kroft joined CBS News in 1980 and became a 60 Minutes correspondent in 1989. "Kroft 's decision to leave the show now, at the relatively tender age of 73, is notable for a show known for the longevity of its correspondent corps," reports The Hollywood Reporter's Marisa Guthrie. "Mike Wallace was nearly 90 when he filed his last piece; a 2008 interview with Roger Clemens. Morely Safer was 84 when he retired in 2016. Lesley Stahl, who joined 60 Minutes in 1991, becomes the show's longest serving correspondent." Kroft has filed 500 pieces for 60 Minutes, most memorably his post-Super Bowl 1992 sitdown with Bill and Hillary Clinton, watched by 34 million people, to address accusations of infidelity.
