As senior producer and then executive producer of newsmagazine upstart 20/20, Victor Neufeld was obsessed with Don Hewitt’s skill at rival 60 Minutes. With Hewitt’s death at 86, Neufeld sees his legacy in surprising spots.
Victor was executive producer of 20/20 for 15 years, starting in 1987. He then was the executive producer of The Early Show at CBS News, and later the executive producer of Paula Zahn Now at CNN. He is now a senior counselor at The Dilenschneider Group.
