    60 Minutes has been very strong lately, much of the credit to Bradley, though. He'll be tough to replace. David Gregory, maybe? he's a tough SOB wasting away at the White House, and the NBC Nightly job ain't coming open any time soon.

    Good call but how tough is it to jump networks? Wouldn't he have some kind of non-compete clause that would keep him off the air for a year if he switched?

    Was the Woods piece his final one?

    Damn, this stinks. I really enjoyed watching him on TV.

    I think, rightly or wrongly, he'll be best known from casual observers for the earring (I think I read that Liza Minnelli inspired him to get it; maybe 21 can ask her if it's true).

    But is his best-known 60 minutes piece the interview with Timothy McVeigh?

    Scoop couldn't carry Ed Bradley's jock.

    Bradley was a great reporter, and a greater human being.

    RIP, Good Sir.

    I don't know the answer, but since 60 Minutes isn't a direct compete with NBC Nightly News, maybe not.

    Dateline to 60M = probably a no complete
    NBC Nightly to CBS Evening = probably a no complete
    NBC Nightly to 60M = ???
