2 Did the series PM East at Westinghouse Licensing Corporation (also known as Westinghouse Electric Corporation), in New York City, New York.
3 Anchored the Election Coverage for Westinghouse Licensing Corporation (also known as Westinghouse Electric Corporation), in New York City, New York, in 1960.
4 He was known to be a very private man.
5 After his death, he left an impressive $21 million dollar fortune to his wife - Mary Yates, who would also die, 5 months later. His will was submitted to court.
6 At age 31, Wallace moved to New York City, New York, in 1949, to pursue a career as a game show host and a television personality.
7 Hobbies: tennis, jogging, sailing, art, politics, dining out and traveling.
8 Wallace was forced to apologize for a racial slur he had made about blacks and Hispanics. During a break while preparing a 60 Minutes (1968) report on a bank that had been accused of duping low-income Californians, Wallace was caught on tape once he made the joke. Attention was re-drawn to that incident several years later when protests were raised against Wallace's being selected to give a university commencement address at the same ceremony during which Nelson Mandela was being awarded an honorary doctorate in absentia for his fight against racism. Wallace initially called the protestors' complaint "absolute foolishness." However, he subsequently again apologized for his earlier remark, and added that when he had been a student decades earlier on the same university campus, "though it had never really caused me any serious difficulty here ... I was keenly aware of being Jewish, and quick to detect slights, real or imagined.... We Jews felt a kind of kinship [with blacks]," but "Lord knows, we weren't riding the same slave ship.".
