William Small, 'hero to journalism' at CBS, NBC, dies at 93
Small, who led CBS News' Washington coverage during the civil rights movement, Vietnam War and Watergate and was later president of NBC News and United Press International, died Sunday, CBS News said. Impressed by Small's work in Louisville, CBS executives hired him in 1962 to be assistant news director of the network's Washington bureau. Small didn't leave the bureau for four days, from the shooting to the burial, he told The Associated Press in 2013. Small defected to NBC in 1979, becoming president of the network's news division and hiring away several CBS reporters, including Mudd and Marvin Kalb. In 2014, the organization honored Small with its lifetime achievement award.
