Ed Bradley's colleagues find comfort in his untouched office

Ed BradleyAccording to Gail Shister of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the 60 Minutes office office of Ed Bradley has not been touched since the veteran reporter died of complications from leukemia in November. Staffers, including his fellow correspondents, have been going into the office to find comfort and reflect on Bradley's unexpected death. ""It feels like he's still here. In some ways, it almost feels like he's off shooting a story," Steve Kroft tells Shister.

The article also speculates on who eventually might take Bradley's spot on the full-time correspondents' roster starting next season. Believe it or not, the last full-timer to come aboard the mothership (not the 60 II edition that ended a couple of years ago) was Leslie Stahl... in 1991.

This is a fitting tribute to such a great person and role model. I adored Ed Bradley and I am still sad by his passing away. Somehow this gesture by CBS and 60 minutes gives me comfort. I also still miss Peter Jennings so much! I don't think these two will ever be REPLACED! There will be subsitutes, but never Replacements.

Ed Bradley is an icon. So much style and really knew how to do a great story, no matter the subject.

I would like to see CBS/60 Minutes add Ted Koppel as a correspondent. He's a little young, at 66, to join but hopefully he will mature as he gets older.

I had no idea I would miss him so much. I was not a huge fan or even thought much about him until he was up and gone. Now every time I think of him I feel a deep sadness that we have lost such a truly unique and genuine person. He was like a favorite uncle, always there in the background, a constant positive force in a world full of turmoil. I miss his gentle voice.....
