Ed Bradley, (CBSTV News correspondent and co-editor, 60 Minutes)
Emrny award-winning Ed Bradley joined 60 MINUTES as a co-editor in 1981. This new season marks his thirteenth on the broadcast. In addition, he is the anchor of CBS News' Street Stories which premiered January 9, 1992.
Shortly after he was born on June 22, 1941, in Philadelphia, Bradley's parents separated "My dad went off to Detroit- had his own business. My mother worked as a waitress." During his childhood he spent summers with his father in Detroit and the rest of the year with his mother in Philadelphia where he attended Roman Catholic schools. Because his mother worked at night and didn't want him running in the streets, she felt it would be best for him to attend Roman Catholic schools. (Observers comment he had been seen--not too long ago--sporting a "I Survived Catholic School" T-shirt!) "We were poor, but there was always food on the table," Bradley told a reporter for People magazine (November, 1983). "I was told, 'You can be anything you want, kid.' When you hear that enough, you believe it."
