CBS – Sunday Morning

COVER STORY: Pete Hamill and the storied history of metropolitan newspapers
Since 2004, some 1,800 metropolitan and community newspapers have gone out of business or merged – a challenging environment for journalists whose job is to report the life’s blood of a city. Two “princes of print” who’d gotten their starts in the heyday of New York City metropolitan newspapers were Jimmy Breslin (who died in 2017) and Pete Hamill, both of whom are the subject of a new HBO documentary, “Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists.” Hamill talked with Tony Dokoupil about working the city beat, and offered advice for journalists of today.

ART: The “new MoMA”
Serena Altschul takes a tour of New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, which is soon to reopen following a major $450 million renovation, with more than 40,000 square feet of new gallery and performance space, and about a thousand additional pieces of art on display.

An hour from the Danish capital city of Copenhagen, visitors at an unusual spiraling walkway, meant to both stand out and blend in with surrounding the forest, can soar 14 stories high, above the canopy of trees, to experience a rare view of nature. Seth Doane talked with Jesper Mathiesen, a former Danish Navy SEAL behind the project, called Camp Adventure, and with architect Tue Foged whose team designed the unique observation tower.

Mitzi Gaynor has been playing with audiences for over 70 years now, in movies, then on TV and in Vegas. The singer, dancer and actress talks with Mo Rocca about being wooed by Howard Hughes, starring in the film version of “South Pacific,” and sharing the “Ed Sullivan Show” stage with The Beatles.
