Bradley was born June 22, 1941, in Philadelphia and was graduated from Cheyney (Pa.) State College in 1964 with a B.S. in education. Ed Bradley’s death at the age of 65 on November 9, 2006 during his 26th season on 60 MINUTES shortened a career full of achievements few other journalists will ever match. His consummate skills as a broadcast journalist and his distinctive work were recognized over and over by the industry’s most demanding award committees, including Columbia University’s Alfred I. du Pont awards, the University of Georgia’s George Foster Peabody awards and the Emmys. His work won 21 Emmys, the last awarded posthumously for his coverage of the Duke University rape case, in which lacrosse players were falsely accused. He was honored with the Lifetime Achievement award from the National Association of Black Journalists.
