Standing Room Only at Schieffer Appearance

Bob Schieffer Bob Schieffer

It was standing room only at the Lucas Theater last night. Hundreds of people gathered to get a glimpse of CBS News anchor Bob Schieffer. So many wanted to get in, they ran out of room and lots of fans had to be turned away.

Schieffer was in town on his book tour, promoting his new book This Just In: What I Couldn't Tell You on TV. We caught up with him earlier in the day while he was speaking to a group of students at Johnson High School, where he told us his advice for young people.

"It's possible, if you work hard, to achieve your dreams," he said. "I hope they never forget that."

Last night's speech was sponsored by Georgia Historical Society.
