60 Minutes is the most successful broadcast in television history.  Offering hard-hitting investigative reports, interviews, feature segments, and profiles of people in the news, the CBS News magazine has been the number-one program a record five times.  It also finished among Nielsen's annual top-10 list for 23 consecutive seasons – a record never even approached by another program.  The program has won more Emmy Awards than any other primetime broadcast, including a special Lifetime Achievement Emmy.  It has also won virtually every other broadcast journalism award, plus 15 Peabody awards for excellence in television broadcasting.  60 Minutes was created in 1968 by Don Hewitt and premiered on CBS September 24th of that year.
 
Matt Richman is the Supervising Editor at 60 Minutes, which is now in its 50th season on CBS.  In his 25-year career at CBS News, Matt has received ten Emmy Awards, two Peabody Awards and the Edward R. Murrow Award.  He is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
 
Matt will be presenting on the 50-year history of 60 Minutes.  He will show video clips from notable moments on 60 Minutes – including clips from stories he edited.
