Ed Bradley Dies

Ed Bradley , 65,died yesterday at Mount Sinai Medical Center of complications from chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

According to doctors, Bradley learned of his leukemia “many years ago,” but his condition had rapidly deteriorated over the last few weeks.

The longtime “60 Minutes” correspondent fought a silent battle. Close colleagues, including Mike Wallace, did not know that Mr. Bradley had leukemia.

Winner of 19 Emmy’s and a lifetime achievement award, Bradley reported on war, scandal, and devastation. His most notable interviews include Timothy McVeigh, Michael Jackson, Robin Williams, and Lena Horne.

Rome Hartman, the Executive Producer of CBS news announced this morning on “First Look” that Lesley Stahl and her “60 Minutes” team are working on a story on Bradley’s career for tonight’s newscast.
