WYNTON MARSALIS will host "Jazz at LINCOLN CENTER's" national radio program, continuing the legacy of ED BRADLEY, who died on NOVEMBER 9 at age 65 of complications from leukemia. BRADLEY, the renowned CBS NEWS "60 Minutes" correspondent, hosted the radio programs for 14 seasons.
"ED BRADLEY was a great lover of jazz and a great friend to 'Jazz at LINCOLN CENTER,'" said MARSALIS. "And for every week since that first radio show, ED's voice reached all of us with authority and feeling. He told us, 'Hey, check this out. It's important, and you'll love it,' and it seemed people did."
"Jazz at LINCOLN CENTER Radio" airs nationwide on more than 240 stations and can be heard at www.jalc.org.
