Ed Bradley - Ed Bradley Emmy-winning 60 Minutes correspondent
November 9, 2006 8:39pm CST
On 60 Minutes, Ed Bradley was the reporter with the earring. The reporter who witnessed the fall of Saigon. The reporter who talked to Michael Jackson and Lena Horne, Muhammad Ali and Timothy McVeigh. Bradley, the Emmy-winning 60 Minutes correspondent who seemed just slightly cooler than the rest of the room during a 26-year run on the venerable newsmagazine, died Thursday at a New York hospital of leukemia, CBS said. He was 65.

He was interested and very accomplished. A shame to find out about it all after he was gone. It was amazing to see the piece that was played so that we could appreciate this intelligent, humble, intereting, accomplished, fascinating man. His colleagues will be missing him too.
