Bruce Morton (born October 28, 1930, in Norwalk, Connecticut) was a television news correspondent for both CBS News and CNN in a career which spanned over 40 years. Morton graduated from Harvard University in 1952 and spent the next three years in the U.S. Army. He joined ABC News in 1962 as a London-based reporter. In 1964, he joined CBS News, where he would stay for the next 29 years. He was based in Washington, D.C., where he was a Congressional correspondent. During his tenure with CBS, he also co-anchored the CBS Morning News (with Hughes Rudd) from 1974 to 1977. Longtime CBS correspondent Roger Mudd, in his 2008 memoir The Place To Be, acknowledged Morton as the best writer in the CBS Washington Bureau during the years they worked together.
