By Chris Ariens 

CBS News has planned a memorial service for Bob Simon for this Thursday. Simon was killed in a car accident in New York City February 11.

The memorial service will take place at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Fredrick P. Rose Hall at 10:30am. Simon’s funeral was held Feb. 17 at the Metropolitan Opera House.

Simon, 73, was a passenger in a livery cab that rear-ended another car and slammed into a median along the West Side Highway. Simon was rushed to St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, where he died. He had just left CBS News headquarters where he’d just finished a story on the Ebola epidemic.

Simon had worked at CBS News 46 years.
