Veteran CBS newsman Mike Wallace is recovering from triple heart-bypass surgery performed Friday, his network announced Tuesday.

Wallace, 89, is already walking after the operation, which the semi-retired 60 Minutes correspondent’s physicians are calling “a great success,” CBS tells the Associated Press.

Heart-bypass surgery generally requires a recovery period of six weeks.
