Ed Bradley (June 22, 1941 – November 9, 2006)

He was wounded while on assignment covering the Vietnam War. In 1976, he became the first black white house correspondent. His accolades are way too numerous for me to go into right now. He was one of the reasons that I pursued journalism in college, and he died today of leukemia.
