Goodbye

Bob Schieffer just signed off of Face the Nation

Longtime CBS anchor Bob Schieffer, 78, wrapped up his final episode of Face the Nation Sunday after 24 years at the helm and about 50 years of reporting news.

"I'll be honest. I'm going to miss being in the middle of things, but the one thing I will never forget is the trust you placed in me and how nice you were to have me as a guest in your home over so many years," Schieffer said Sunday. "That meant the world to me."

CBS political director John Dickerson is slated to take over the hosting gig.
