An Inspirational Role Model to Others
Bob never forgot his most important mentor, Phil Record, who was his first editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Bob mentored dozens of young reporters over the years at CBS News. Mary Hager worked with Bob for more than 25 years, beginning as his assistant on Capitol Hill, then working as a field producer and ultimately becoming executive producer at Face the Nation, which is one of the most important posts at CBS News. Kaylee Hartung worked five years as Bob’s assistant, then went on to be an ESPN sports reporter and a CNN news correspondent. Kylie Atwood, another of Bob’s assistants, now covers the State Department for CBS News, and Bob’s most recent assistant, Lucy Boyd, now works in the investigative unit for the CBS program, 60 Minutes.
