Pelley is the most awarded correspondent in the fifty-three-year history of 60 Minutes. 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-seven years. They have two children.Read more Read less
