Longtime CBS News Correspondent Harold Dow died suddenly Saturday morning.
Dow has been a correspondent for “48 Hours” since 1990 after serving as a contributor to the broadcast since its premiere Jan. 19, 1988. Dow was also a contributor to the critically acclaimed 1986 documentary “48 Hours on Crack Street,” which led to creation of the single-topic weekly news magazine.
“CBS News is deeply saddened by this sudden loss,” said Sean McManus, president of CBS News and Sports. “The CBS News family has lost one of its oldest and most talented members, whose absence will be felt by many and whose on-air presence and reporting skills touched nearly all of our broadcasts. We extend our deepest condolences to his wife Kathy and their children Joelle, Danica and David.”
