Ed Bradley Remembered At Riverside Church: He Was ‘Like The Great Jazz Musicians He Admired’


Riverside Church was packed this morning to honor legendary CBS Newsman Ed Bradley.

Bill Clinton: “He was like the great jazz musicians he admired. He always played in the key of reason. I knew I had arrived in national politics when Ed Bradley wanted to interview me … I always preferred when he interviewed others.”

Among those in attendance: Bill Cosby, the Rev. Jesse Jackson; New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, singers Aaron Neville, Jimmy Buffet and Paul Simon, Katie Couric, Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, Lesley Stahl, Mike Wallace, Morley Safer and Diane Sawyer.
