'60' To Air Bradley Memorial Broadcast

Special Edition Will Feature A Solo Trumpet End-Piece By Close Friend Wynton Marsalis

The full hour of 60 Minutes will be dedicated to the memory of correspondent 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.

Steve Kroft speaks to Bradley's closest friends, who share their rich experiences of him off-camera to reveal the kind, generous lover of life that he was for those who only knew him on camera. 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, the artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Marsalis pays tribute to his friend with a trumpet solo at the end of the hour.

Morley Safer reviews and puts into context the contribution Bradley made to 60 Minutes with his distinctive body of work — estimated at 500 stories. Bradley's best moments will be highlighted in this eloquent retrospective.

Lesley Stahl looks back on Bradley's rise from a tough Philadelphia neighborhood to the heights of journalistic achievement and national recognition as one of America's most esteemed television personalities.

And, in true 60 Minutes fashion, Andy Rooney also will contribute a remembrance of Bradley.
