Fifty years in journalism and 30 seasons later, Steve Kroft ends a chapter in his distinguished career, retiring from 60 Minutes as the show’s longest-tenured correspondent on the most-watched news program on television. Kroft delivered his first report in the Fall of 1989. He received the Silurians Lifetime Achievement Award.
In 2008, he landed what was arguably the most significant interview of the year: the first post-election sit-down with Barack and Michelle Obama. It was broadcast on 60 Minutes November 16 to over 25 million viewers, the largest primetime television audience of the season to that point.

He also reported two of the biggest news stories of 2011, getting the only interview with President Barack Obama on the killing of Osama bin Laden and revealing that author and humanitarian Greg Mortenson lied in his best-selling book, Three Cups of Tea.
