During our recent assignment to Washington, D.C. to interview Senator Chris Dodd and cover his final senate speech, we made a stop by CBS News to talk to the legendary Bob Schieffer, host of Face the Nation. The avuncular Schieffer and I chatted about politics and his alma mater Texas Christian University, which is joining the Big East.
Great guy and fascinating to talk with. The interview with Bob Schieffer will air this Sunday morning on Face the State, preceded by Face the Nation.
He will also talk about when and why he is planning a trip to Hartford.
By the way, Schieffer is a big fan of WFSB because ratings for Face the Nation in the Hartford New Haven market are some of their best in the country.
