NEW YORK (AP) - “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace says his dad, veteran “60 Minutes” journalist Mike Wallace, worked hard to connect with his family in his last years and became his “best friend.”

Chris Wallace made his first statement Monday following the death of his father.

Mike Wallace died on Saturday night at age 93. His television career spanned six decades, much of it at CBS.

Chris Wallace says his father was “everything you saw on television: fascinating and funny, challenging and exasperating.” He says work often came before family but in the last two decades his father worked hard to make connections with his family.

He says his dad was “surrounded by children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren” at the end of his life. He says he already misses his dad “terribly.”
