Famed CBS '60 Minutes' correspondent Morley Safer has died.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

At the age of 84, Morley Safer was the longest-serving correspondent in '60 minutes' history. If you grew up in the 70-80's, it was his voice in the background of your Sunday suppers...

Before Safer joined the CBS News program, he worked as a war correspondent. His 1965 report showing a marine at Cam Ne setting a hut on fire with a cigarette lighter almost single handedly ushered in the era known as 'the living room war'.

He joined '60 minutes' in 1970, just two years after it launched, contributing 919 reports over the years. He filed his last report in March.
