2006_11_edbradley.jpgEd Bradley, longtime CBS News journalist and 60 Minutes correspondent, died today at age 65. Bradley had been diagnosed with leukemia some years ago, but a recent infection made his condition life-threatening.

Bradley, who grew up in Philadelphia, had covered the Vietnam War and was a White House correspondent for CBS in the 1970s. Bradley won 19 Emmy Awards for a range of topics, an interview with Timothy McVeigh, Chinese forced-labor camps and a recent segment about the reopening of Emmett Till's murder case. He also won a Peabody Award for a story about Africans dying of AIDS.
