On on May 31, 2015, “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer signed off on his final broadcast reflecting on his half-century of reporting, and says he’ll miss being in the middle of the action.
“I wanted to work for CBS because Walter Cronkite was my hero,” said Schieffer, who admitted he’ll miss being in the middle of the action. However, he said he will never forget the trust viewers placed in him and “how nice you were having me as a guest in your home over so many years.”
“That meant the world to me and it always will,” Schieffer signed off. “Thank you.”
