Mike Wallace, the long-time “60 Minutes” star who transformed TV journalism with his tough interview style, died Saturday night at the age of 93.

Washington Post readers have already begun sharing their memories of Wallace, and what he taught them, on the Washington Post Facebook page:

Karen Neff - He was one of the first to get me interested in politics and justice in America.

Heidi BruMar - “My grandfather served with Mike Wallace in the US Navy during WWII, on board the USS Anthedon. Grandpa always sent Wallace birthday cards and has a letter from him.”

Ken Moskowitz - I grew up watching him do fantastic journalism. Another true newsman has passed.
