Bill Small, who made CBS news a powerhouse in the 1960s and the 1970s, has died.
Small served as the network’s Washington Bureau Chief from 1962 to 1974 and brought together a team of journalists that would go on to dominate political coverage throughout the turbulent time of the Vietnam War and Watergate.
The roster included veteran reporters recruited from within CBS: Marvin Kalb, Dan Rather, Harry Reasoner, Dan Schorr and Eric Sevareid. He made new hires: Bob Schieffer, Ed Bradley, Bernard Shaw, Bernard Kalb and Bill Moyers.
Small was 93.
