Ray Brady, a longtime CBS News correspondent who focused on business and the economy, died Jan. 12 at his home in Manhattan. He was 94.
Cynthia Littleton of Variety reports, “Brady spent 28 years with CBS News, starting in 1972 when he joined CBS Radio. He retired in 2000 after 23 years as a correspondent for ‘CBS Evening News.’
“Brady was well-regarded among his colleagues for his knowledge of business and understanding of how markets move. He was also remembered as a consistently natty dresser. At the time of Brady’s retirement, then CBS News president Andrew Heyward hailed ‘his powerful sense of integrity, his genuine interest in the people he met along the way, and his unflagging passion for the next story.’
“In the 1990s, Brady hosted the regular ‘Evening News’ segment ‘The Money Crunch,’ which sought to help viewers find ways to stretch their dollars. He also hosted the ‘Eye on America’ segments highlighting the lives of everyday Americans.”
