60 Minutes has a brand new hour of reports on December 7. Be sure to tune in for stories about the Dan River spill in North Carolina, what one doctor is doing in the fight against cancer, and what has become of an historic violin. Those stories are coming to you this weekend on the CBS newsmagazine.
60 Minutes: The Spill at Dan River
Lesley Stahl is visiting with the CEO of Duke Energy to follow up on a spill in early 2014 at North Carolina’s Dan River. That’s when coal ash polluted the water supply, as it has arguably done in 32 ponds throughout the state. Now federal regulators are poised to address whether they will regulate coal ash disposal, something that is currently monitored only by individual states. CEO Lynn Good is calling for patience, since there is a lot of ash that needs to be moved, and the logistics of this large-scale project can be daunting. Get the story this weekend on 60 Minutes.
60 Minutes: Disrupting Cancer
Dr Patrick Soon-Shiong is a name you may already be familiar with if you know a lot about cancer research. He is a billionaire thanks to his creation of a game-changing cancer drug, but he is not content to revel in his success. Instead, he is pushing forward and experimenting with more unconventional methods on a quest to one day cure cancer. It’s nice that dedicated and brilliant medical minds are at work on a task such as this. Hopefully this report will provide encouragement. See it for yourself on Sunday, December 7, with Dr Sanjay Gupta.
60 Minutes: City of Music
Cremona, Italy is a city that has been a part of history. In medieval times, it gave birth to the Stradivarius Violin, which continues to set a standard that craftsmen find difficult to duplicate centuries after its debut. Learn more about these expensive and glorious instruments with Bill Whitaker during a new hour of 60 Minutes this Sunday.
