At the end of the March 18th broadcast of 'CBS Sunday Morning', the end credits began with this:

From Deadline:
William M. “Bill” Brady, a CBS News Director for over 30 years and Directors Guild of America Network Negotiating Committee chairman, has died at age 65. No cause of death was given in the announcement by DGA president Thomas Schlamme and national executive director Russell Hollander.

From CBS News:
A graduate of Queens College in New York, Brady rose from a mailroom job at CBS to become one of the network's most accomplished news directors. For more than 30 years Brady directed such CBS News programs as "America Tonight," "The Early Show," "Eye to Eye," "48 Hours," "Public Eye," "Street Stories," and many special reports, as well as episodes of the series "Survivor." 

From 1998-2011, Brady directed broadcasts of "Sunday Morning." 

"In the universe of television, Bill Brady was, well, a cowboy," said "Sunday Morning" executive producer Rand Morrison. "He made live television an adventure. Sometimes brilliant, sometimes scary ... oftentimes fun.

"He was invaluable in helping us turn the corner from the early days and create a more mainstream 'Sunday Morning' broadcast."

Good night and may God bless.....
