At age 73, fearless journalist Bob Simon says goodbye, and fellow news personalities are mourning.
Simon was killed last Wednesday night on a car crash in New York City. E! News confirmed that he was a passenger in a Lincoln Town Car livery cab which rear-ended a Mercedez-Benz, then hit a median at W. 30 Street while on the way south.
“One of the great writers of a generation has passed. Bob Simon was a journalist of extraordinary courage,” CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley tweets after announcing it on air.
