It’s called “The Screening Room”–sometimes The Screaming Room–where adjustments are made as CBS News Chairman and 60 MINUTES Executive Producer Jeff Fager calls them. 60 MINUTES SPORTS Correspondents Armen Keteyian and Lara Logan join Fager and 60 MINUTES Executive Editor Bill Owens in a rare and candid discussion about the process that they say is not for the feint of heart. But it is a definitive process, even as segments get “eviscerated”. “This is going to be good,” is the coda of support to end this critical process that ensures each and every “60” piece meets the standard of excellence set by the pioneers of the newsmagazine genre.
The next episode of 60 MINUTES SPORTS premieres Wednesday, March 6th at 9p ET/PT.
