"60 Minutes" newswoman Diane Sawyer plans to marry Friday for the first time, to film director Mike Nichols, CBS said.

The match is the culmination of a six-month romance. The location of the wedding was not disclosed by the network Thursday.

Nichols, 56, a former comedian who went on to direct the films "The Graduate" and "Silkwood" and the plays "The Odd Couple" and "The Real Thing," has been married twice before.

It will be the first marriage for Sawyer, a 42-year-old former aide to President Richard M. Nixon.
