Trailblazing pioneerÂ journalistÂ Ed Bradley died of leukemia Thursday.Â The forward-thinking 65-year-oldÂ correspondent had a long career working with CBS, reporting for the news agency since 1967.Â
Bradley’s inquisitive nature, his trademark earring & his resiliant spirit all made the man a tremendous reporter and added vitality to news reporting once again.
“We have lost one of America’s best,” Dan Rather stated.
“As a compassionate, sensitive person, he was an example of all a conscientious and dedicated journalist can be.”Â -but rarely are.
He will be sorely missed.Â So long, Ed, you did good.
Bradley is survived by his artist wife Patricia Blanchet, whom he married in 2004.Â
