Both journalists spoke about the ever-changing world of journalism and how news is distributed. They also spoke about the behind the scenes work at 60 Minutes. They shared their insights into what makes 60 Minutes work and about their experiences working in journalism.
Steve has been a correspondent for 60 Minutes since May 1989 and Lesley, since March 1991. Both journalists have received the Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award, among other honors.
