NEW YORK (AP) — “60 Minutes” said goodbye to Morley Safer on Sunday, honoring the newsman who has been a fixture at the CBS news-magazine for all but two of its 48 years. The tribute marked the close of a 61-year career for Safer, who, according to the program, has had the longest-ever run on prime-time television. CBS announced his retirement last week. Safer’s first report on “60 Minutes” in 1970 was about the training of U.S. Sky Marshals. His 919th and last, a profile of Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, was broadcast in March. At 84 and dealing with health issues, Safer had cut back on work in recent years. The Toronto-born Safer was the first Saigon bureau chief for CBS News.
