Byron Pitts Hears The Stopwatch Ticking

And That's A Good Thing; "60 Minutes" Continues Assembling Next Generation of Correspondents

I first campaigned back in 2007 for Byron Pitts to get the nod to replace Ed Bradley on "60 Minutes," having been an admirer of his hard work and versatility both as a viewer and a former colleague.

So, I'm pumped up to hear he'll be a contributing correspondent to the show, with a minimum of six pieces a year. Let's hope for more.

"He's the right guy for the right job at the right time," CBS News President Sean McManus told The Daily News.

Damn right.
