'60 Minutes' Report by Bob Simon Airs Days After His Death

Sunday, 15 February 2015 07:34 PM

"60 Minutes" remembered its longtime correspondent Bob Simon on Sunday by airing a story he finished on the day he died, four days earlier.

The story, reported by Simon, looked into a possible new treatment for the Ebola virus. It was produced by Simon's daughter, Tanya, a veteran "60 Minutes" producer.

Following the report, fellow correspondent Steve Kroft spoke of Simon's "sense of justice and his sense of the absurd," both of which informed his journalism. Kroft said Simon was "both a model and an inspiration" to his colleagues at CBS News during 47 years at the network.

Simon, 73, died Wednesday night in a car accident in Manhattan.

"60 Minutes" will devote its full hour next Sunday to him and his career.
