Lesley Stahl celebrates the 50th season of 60 Minutes and her 26th season as host/correspondent on the show.  She shares stories from her 45 years at CBS including how the young reporter beat out the other networks as the first to report on Watergate scandal, the time she broke the news that Ronald Reagan had picked George H.W. Bush as his running mate (and no one believed her), and her impressions of the three U.S. Presidents she covered during her time as CBS White House correspondent.  She discusses some of her more interesting interviews for 60 Minutes including the first post-election sit-down with Donald Trump, the incident when Nicolas Sarkozy stormed off in the middle of a taping, and the time she ticked off an angry drunk Boris Yeltsin.  Plus Lesley Stahl shares fond memories of Don Hewitt, Mike Wallace, and Andy Rooney.

The 50th season of 60 Minutes kicks off with special anniversary episode this Sunday, September 24, at 6/7 Central on CBS.  For more information, visit www.CBSnews.com and order Lesley Stahl’s charming memoir Becoming Grandma: The Joys and Science of the New Grandparenting on Amazon.
