PASSAGES: Ed Bradley
2006-12-08

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


Veteran 60 Minutes correspondent Ed Bradley, known for his coolness and a uniquely empathetic style, passed away Nov. 9 of complications from chronic lymphocytic leukemia, according to The New York Times. He was 65.

Bradley had been with 60 Minutes for 25 years. During his career, Bradley won 19 Emmys, the most recent for a piece on the murder of Emmett Till. He was also honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Black Journalists.

Even some close colleagues, including Mike Wallace, did not know that Mr. Bradley had leukemia or that his health had precipitously deteriorated over the last few weeks.

Bradley, who was also known for the scope of his reports, interviewed figures as diverse as Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and singer Lena Horne, according to The Boston Globe. Among his other galvanizing pieces were reports on the Duke lacrosse scandal and the murder of a gay soldier. The latter item helped to demonstrate that anti-gay sentiment was not only tolerated but promulgated by military superiors, according to RTNDA.org .

Bradley, who had no children, is survived by his wife, Patricia Blanchet, whom he married two years ago at his home in Aspen, Colo.
