Mo Rocca and 'CBS Sunday Morning' visited North Dakota to talk Peggy Lee
The interview with Peggy Lee's granddaughter will air this weekend.
WIMBLEDON, N.D. — “CBS Sunday Morning” plans to finally air an interview with Peggy Lee’s granddaughter filmed in the Midland Continental Railroad Transportation Museum in Wimbledon.
The section, featuring correspondent Mo Rocca, was shot on March 20, 2021. The segment will air Sunday morning, Feb. 6, between 8 and 9:30 a.m.
It was initially planned as part of celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of Lee’s birth on May 26, 1920 , but COVID-19 travel restrictions prompted postponing the interview with the late singer’s heir, Holly Foster Wells. She insisted the talk take place in what was the Midland Continental Depot, where the singer, born Norma Delores Egstrom, lived in the 1930s with her father, the depot’s agent.
The building has been restored and is now a museum to the singer’s life and music.
