CBS News Veteran Dies Suddenly

Broadcast journalism lost one of its most seasoned reporters on Saturday with the sudden death of CBS News correspondent Harold Dow. Dow covered major stories throughout his career: while covering the 9/11 attacks he escaped one of the falling Twin Towers, and he was the first on the network to interview O.J. Simpson after the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Since 1990 Dow had been a correspondent for 48 Hours and throughout his career had contributed segments to various CBS news magazine shows and reported for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. He is survived by his wife Kathy and their three children Joelle, Danica and David. Said 48 Hours Mystery Executive Producer Susan Zirinsky: "It was his humanity, which was felt by everyone he encountered, even in his toughest interviews, that truly defined the greatness of his work."
