Bob Simon

Robert David "Bob" Simon (May 29, 1941 – February 11, 2015) was an American television correspondent for CBS News. He covered crises, war, and unrest in 67 countries during his career. Simon reported the withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam, the Israeli-Lebanese Conflict in 1982, and the student protests in China's Tiananmen Square in 1989. During the Persian Gulf War in 1991, he and four of his TV crew were captured and imprisoned by Iraq for 40 days. He published a book about the experience titled "Forty Days."

He became a regular correspondent for CBS's ''60 Minutes'' in 1996 and, in 1999, for ''60 Minutes II''. At the time of his death in an auto accident, he served as ''60 Minutes'' senior foreign correspondent. Simon is described as having been "a giant of broadcast journalism" by CBS News President David Rhodes,. He is recognized as one of the few journalists who have covered most of the major overseas conflicts since 1969. For his extensive reporting over a 47-year career, he earned more than 40 major awards, including the Overseas Press Club award and 27 Emmy Awards for journalism.

On February 11, 2015, Simon was critically injured in a car accident in Manhattan, New York. He was transported to St. Luke's–Roosevelt Hospital (now Mount Sinai West), where he died shortly afterwards. Provided by Wikipedia
