Whitaker ’73, L.H.D. ’97 Featured in NYT Style

A December profile in the New York Times Style section takes readers inside the Harlem apartment that Emmy Award-winning “60 Minutes” correspondent and HWS Trustee Bill Whitaker ’73, L.H.D. ’97 calls home.

“A Tour of Bill Whitaker’s High-Rise Living Room in Harlem” features photos of the apartment and its view of Central Park, as well as Whitaker’s reflections on furnishings, décor and his work life.

Of the cityscape outside his living room windows, Whitaker says, “I just never, ever tire of that. You can see all the way down to One World Trade Center. At night, it’s like a jewel box. You see all the lights flashing in Times Square. You’re part of it, but at a remove.”

Prior to joining “60 Minutes” in 2014, Whitaker spent 30 years with CBS News, covering three presidential campaigns, the O.J. Simpson case, overseas wars and events, and interviewing national figures, including First Lady Michelle Obama.
