Next Avenue

Steven Reiner, an associate professor of journalism at Stony Brook University, worked with Safer at 60 Minutes for more than a decade beginning in 1996 on profiles of the late neurologist, author Oliver Sacks and conductor Michael Tilson-Thomas, and traveling with him to the kingdom of Bhutan, thought to be the happiest place on Earth. What stands out, Reiner says, is Morley’s "inimitable persona, his style, his affect, his extraordinarily quirky, unpredictable and brilliant wit, his sense of the absurd, playfulness, irony. He was a wonderful artist, pen and ink. Morley had a lot of passions — racecar driving in the country — a very full and rich life outside of 60 Minutes. I don’t think 60 Minutes ever became his identity per se the way it was for others. But the great irony is he survived Mike Wallace, Ed Bradley, Bob Simon and founding executive producer Don Hewitt."
