Award winning journalist Ed Bradley has passed away at the age of 65. Bradley passed away from complications to leukemia at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. So many of us grew up with Ed Bradley watching 60 Minutes. He was truly a fine journalist and man. What makes someone a truly amazing person and able to reach the level that Ed Bradley was able to attain? An inner belief and drive with core values

Ed Bradley

(1941 – 2006)

“I was told, ‘You can be anything you want, kid,’” he once told an interviewer. “When you hear that often enough, you believe it.”  (Ed Bradley)

Hear what his peers had to say about the man, Ed Bradley. God Bless  … Rest in Peace.


Mary Alice Williams, a writer for the CBS Evening News, said: “He was such an elegant person and a great reporter. He was also my friend. We are so lucky to have known him. He raised the bar for all of us.”

“He certainly was a reporter’s reporter,” fellow 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace told CBS News Radio.

Katie Couric said Bradley was “considered intelligent, smooth, cool, a great reporter, beloved and respected by all his colleagues here at CBS News.”

“It’s an incredibly sad day for everyone at CBS News. Ed was a phenomenal reporter and a great man,” Senior Broadcast Producer Bill Owens told CBSNews.com. “Never have the words, ‘he will be missed’ meant more.”  (CBS News)

      About DeVries’ investigation of suspect throwing someone over a bridge…
      D says to J: You know very well, you’re always trying to come between us.
      J says to D: Then you’re going to start talking shit about the choller (drug addict).
      J says to D: My friend, it was me that helped you with that shit / the matter of the choller.
      D says to J: I said that too.
      J says to D: I didn’t read that, I also read the declaration.
      S says to J: The thing about the choller was from me.
      D or S says to J: That’s what I just said.
      D or S says to J: I also said that in my first declaration. I did that for myself.

      I agree, what is #1 all about. Go back to your
      fantasy land #1. Mr. Bradley was a very beloved
      and gentle man with knowledge acquired from God.
      Rest in Peace my friend, you will be missed.

      60 Minutes every Sunday Night –
      That’s how much you meant to us

      We will always miss you. You went from being cute, to
      being nice to being sexy and finally to being hip. We
      will always love the many hours that we spent with you.

      We hope that you will rest in peace knowing that you
      always told the truth and reported on the stories that
      meant the most to America.

      God be with his family. I know how proud that you must
      be to have known him on a personal basis. May God be
      with you and bring you strength, peace and happiness in
      the years to come… he’d want it that way.

      What a wonderful man!

      How do you know that it doesn’t mean someone that is angry?
