Speaker: Ira Rosen


Tick­ing Clock: Behind the Scenes at 60 Minutes


Two-time Peabody Award-win­ning writer and pro­duc­er Ira Rosen reveals the inti­mate, untold sto­ries of his decades at Amer­i­ca’s most icon­ic news show. It’s a 60 Min­utes sto­ry on 60 Min­utes itself.

When pro­duc­er Ira Rosen walked into the 60 Min­utes offices in June 1980, he knew he was about to enter tele­vi­sion his­to­ry. His career cat­a­pult­ed him to the heights of TV jour­nal­ism, break­ing some of the most impor­tant sto­ries in TV news. But behind the scenes was a war room of clash­ing pro­duc­ers, anchors, and the most for­mi­da­ble 60 Min­utes fig­ure: leg­endary cor­re­spon­dent Mike Wallace.



For near­ly twen­ty-five years, Ira Rosen has pro­duced some of the most mem­o­rable, impor­tant, and ground­break­ing sto­ries for 60 Min­utes. A for­mer Nie­man Fel­low at Har­vard Uni­ver­si­ty, Rosen was a senior pro­duc­er of Prime­time Live with Diane Sawyer. Rosen has won 24 Nation­al Emmys, four duPont Awards, two RFK Awards, and two Peabodys for his work. He is the co-author of The Warn­ing: Acci­dent at Three Mile Island.
