Wynton to play a tribute for Ed Bradley
Tomorrow, on CBS, the full hour of “60 Minutes” will be dedicated to the memory of Ed Bradley, who passed away on Thursday. The special memorial edition, in which close friends, his best work and the story of his remarkable life will be featured, will be broadcast this Sunday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
Among those speaking about the other Bradley, affectionately known as “Teddy,” are close friends Jimmy Buffett, the musician, journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Wynton Marsalis.
Wynton will pay tribute to his friend with a trumpet solo at the end of the hour.
A wonderful tribute to a man who brought a level of class and integrity to journalism. His presence on 60 Minutes was always a highlight and will be missed.

Nice, bioooooooooootifullllll, a little short but….. CLASSY………like he was.
His honest and warm inquisitive quest for the true story of people, will be missed.
It will be hard to imagine “60 minutes” without him, as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center on NPR.
