Don Hewitt, Creator of "60 Minutes," Has Died

Don Hewitt, creator and executive producer of "60 Minutes," died today at the age of 86.

"60 Minutes" was groundbreaking television: it was the first television magazine, and its format continues to be copied. In Tick... Tick... Tick...: The Long Life and Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes by David Blum, students will find an insider's view of the most successful show in the history of TV--and and a new perspective on how current events become news.

If you'd like to consider Tick... Tick... Tick...: The Long Life and Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes for one of your classes, please order an examination copy. If you've already decided to require the book, please request a desk copy.
