Scott Pelley

Scott Pelley has been a reporter and photographer more than forty-five years.

He is best known for his 20 years (and counting) on the CBS News magazine 60 Minutes and as anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News (2011-2017).

Pelley's work has been recognized with three duPont-Columbia Awards, three Peabody Awards, and thirty-seven national Emmy Awards bestowed by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Pelley is the most awarded correspondent in the fifty-one-year history of 60 Minutes.

In 2016, in accepting the Walter Cronkite Award, Pelley said, "I receive too much credit for the work of others. I have never accomplished anything in journalism without photographers, producers and editors. Hundreds of people at CBS News have given me my career, but one person has given me a life, my lovely wife, Jane." Pelley has been married to the love of his life for thirty-five years. They have two children.
