Replacing 60 Minutes' Bradley a "Long-term Project"

Rather than scramble to find a full-time replacement for Ed Bradley, who was felled by leukemia on Nov. 9, 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager says the show will instead finish out the season by spreading the veteran reporter's workload around. "It's a long-term project to find the [person] who can show the abilities that are expected of a 60 Minutes correspondent," Fager tells the AP. As for any perceived onus to replace the newsmagazine's lone African-American on-screen reporter with another, Steve Kroft says, "It would be a mistake to address that [issue of diversity] just for the sake of addressing that."read more
