"With the addition of 60 MINUTES video to Yahoo!, our users will have access to one of the most respected news franchises, programmed and edited with Yahoo!'s audience in mind," said Lloyd Braun, head of Yahoo!'s media group. "We're focused on creating an experience that gives users a complete picture of the stories and issues important to them," he added.

All of the program's content will be archived by Yahoo!.
