Former Face the Nation anchor and veteran journalist Bob Schieffer discussed his storied career with Joseph Califano, Jr., domestic policy advisor to President Johnson.

Bob Schieffer retired in May 2015, in his 58th year as a reporter and his 46th year at CBS News. He is one of the few broadcast or print journalists to have covered all four major beats in the nation's capital – the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department and Capitol Hill.

Schieffer had served as the moderator of Face the Nation, CBS News’ Sunday public affairs broadcast, since 1991. He anchored the CBS Evening News from March 2005 to August 2006. He also served as CBS News’ chief Washington correspondent for over 30 years.

Schieffer has received virtually every award in broadcast journalism, but feels the greatest honor was bestowed upon him in 2005 when his alma mater, Texas Christian University, created the Schieffer School of Journalism. 

Joseph Califano, Jr. is the founder and chairman of the board of The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University and serves as a trustee of the LBJ Foundation.
