Veteran CBS Newsman Ed Bradley Dies


The U.S. television network, CBS, has announced that award-winning correspondent Ed Bradley has died. He was 65.

CBS says Bradley died Thursday in New York of leukemia. He was a correspondent on the television program, 60 Minutes, for 26 years.

Bradley won numerous awards for his reporting, including 19 Emmys, on topics including AIDS in Africa, brain cancer patients, and sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. He also had the only televised interview with Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

CBS says Bradley joined the network as a freelancer in Paris in 1971, and the following year was transferred to Saigon. He covered the fall of Cambodia and Vietnam, and was wounded doing so.

Bradley also reported from the Democratic and Republican national conventions, and he worked as a White House correspondent.
