The Boss's Pick

Before Jeff Fager became executive producer of "60 Minutes," he produced stories for the broadcast. Here's one of his all-time favorites: a story about Boston's Billy Bulger

For Overtime's special holiday show, we asked the boss at "60 Minutes" to choose a favorite piece from over the years and share it with our online viewers.

Executive Producer Jeff Fager picked one of his very own. Before he took the reigns from "60 Minutes" founder Don Hewitt, Fager was a producer for the broadcast, and in 1992, he captured the colorful political scene of a city he loves: Boston. Here's Fager's classic piece about Massachusetts' then-Senate president, Billy Bulger, and his gang kingpin brother Whitey.

Editor's Note: Billy Bulger's brother James "Whitey" Bulger, who was on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list for his alleged role in 19 murders, was captured Wednesday, June 22, 2011 near Los Angeles after living on the run for 16 years, law enforcement officials said.
