Don Hewitt, “60 Minutes” founding executive producer, said he has a small cancerous growth on his pancreas and will start treatment for it later this week, the New York Times reports. According to the 86-year-old news vet, his prognosis is good and doctors do not believe the cancer has spread to other organs, the newspaper says. Hewitt joined CBS News in 1948 and retired from “60 Minutes” in 2004, the Times notes.
