Born Bob Lloyd Schieffer on February 25, 1937, in Austin, Texas, he is widely known for his long tenure in CBS, America's major commercial broadcasting television network. After graduation, Schieffer spent some time serving in the US Air Force before becoming a reporter for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Then, he briefly worked for WBAP in Dallas, before eventually joining CBS in 1969. He made his CBS beginnings as anchor for the Sunday broadcasts. Since, he anchored the Saturday edition of CBS Evening News from 1973 to 1996; served as chief Washington correspondent since 1982, and moderator of the Sunday popular public affairs show Face the Nation since 1991.
