This coming Sunday CBS’s 60 Minutes will air its last show before going on summer hiatus. Presumably that means the profile it’s been preparing on Vogue editor Anna Wintour will finally air.


60 Minutes said it wasn’t ready to reveal next Sunday’s story lineup just yet. But after this weekend, the news magazine goes into repeats for most of the summer. We first heard of it back in January and The Cut reported that CBS News cameras were following the fashion world’s queen bee as far back as last November. Morley Safer was spotted sitting next to Wintour at New York’s Fashion Week this past February.


First her documentary The September Issue premieres in January at Sundance (and is due in theaters in, duh, September) and now 60 Minutes — why is Anna suddenly so press friendly? Probably for exactly the same ones as why there was another sudden burst of rumors about Si Newhouse bringing in French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld to New York to replace her: Anna’s contract is up for renewal later this year. A burst of publicity can’t hurt to build leverage — though unlike the September Issue, which was filmed during the boom days of 2007, when Vogue was thick with ads, the 60 Minutes piece is being filmed during the Great Magazine Die-Off when even Conde Nast is tightening its belts. Consider our DVR locked and loaded for Sunday.
