*”60 Minutes” host Steve Kroft is shedding light on his own story! He’s been involved in an extra-martial affair for three years with a New York lawyer, Lisan Goines.
Kroft first joined CBS as a reporter in 1980 before becoming one of the hosts of “60 Minutes” for more than 25 years. Not only ishe a longtime TV personality, but he’s been married to Jennet Conant, with whom he has one son, for 23 years.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six, he first met Goines at a bar in St. Regis Hotel in New York three years ago — beginning the affair.
“I had an extramarital affair that was a serious lapse of personal judgment and extremely hurtful to my wife and family, and for that I have nothing but regret,” he told the National Enquirer.
He added, “this was a personal failure, not a professional one, and had no impact whatsoever on my job as a journalist. My wife and I are committed to each other and are working hard to get past this, and consider it a private matter.”
