Ed Bradley dead at 65

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - The distinctive television journalist Ed Bradley
is being remembered today as a "great reporter" who was
comfortable with just about everyone.

The creator and former producer of "60 Minutes," Don Hewitt,
says Bradley was a reporter who got along with "people of every
stripe." And Hewitt says he doubts that there will be another
reporter like him for quite a while. Hewitt says Bradley was "sort
of every man."

Bradley, who won 19 Emmys and served as a correspondent to "60
Minutes" for 26 years, died this morning in New York of leukemia.

Fellow "60 Minutes" correspondent Mike Wallace described
Bradley to C-B-S News Radio as a "reporter's reporter."

Bradley was 65.
