Philly Names Road After 60 Minutes Correspondent

Before heading to CBS and 60 Minutes, the late Ed Bradley worked in Philly TV.

Now the city is showing some respect for the newsman, by naming a road after him. 

A stretch of City Avenue was officially renamed Saturday for Bradley, who died in 2006 at age 65.

The dedication of City Avenue (U.S. Route 1) between Monument Road and Presidential Boulevard is now "Ed Bradley Way".

Holding a street sign bearing Bradley's name, his widow, Patricia Blanchet, was all smiles.

"You know, he was never a big man in his own head, and for his hometown to recognize him with something that is permanent in this way, that tons of people will see riding down City Avenue, will have a lot of meaning for him," Blanchet told KYW. "I think he would be astounded and surprised and really pleased."
