Harold Dow Dies

Emmy-winning CBS News correspondent, Harold Dow, has died today.

Harold was 62 & lived in Hackenssack, N.J.

Over nearly 40 years with the network, Dow has covered a lot of stories, such as the kidnapping of Patricia Hearst and the Sept. 11 attacks. He was perhaps the best known for helping shape the weekly documentary program “48 Hours.”

“Dow died suddenly on Saturday morning in New Jersey.” – said network spokeswoman Louise Bashi says. She did not say any details what he died of.

Dow had been a correspondent for “48 Hours” since 1990 and had also reported for “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather” and “CBS News Sunday Morning.”

He won a Peabody Award for a “48 Hours” report on runaways. He also won five Emmys for work that included the coverage of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, and of American troops’ movement into Bosnia in 1996.
