Late CBS News veteran Bob Simon was born not far from our area in the Bronx, but his years of journalism brought something for everybody.

Simon was killed in an automobile accident in Manhattan on Wednesday night.

"Bob was a reporter's reporter. He was driven by a natural curiosity that took him all over the world covering every kind of story imaginable," said 60 Minutes Executive Producer Jeff Fager, according to CBS News. "There is no one else like Bob Simon. All of us at CBS News and particularly at 60 Minutes will miss him very much.”

Simon, 73, had a 47-year career with CBS News. Simon reported on Vietnam stories, China’s Tiananmen Square in 1989, and on the Gulf War. Fox News reports that during the Gulf War, Simon and four of his crew members were captured by the Iraqi army and imprisoned for 40 days. In the second war in Iraq war, Simon interviewed Iraqi insurgency leader Muqtada al-Sadr.
