Remembering Harold Dow

Dow_8.21.jpgRichard Prince‘s Journal-isms got some reaction from several of CBS Newsman Harold Dow‘s colleagues, following Dow’s sudden death Saturday morning.

“60 Minutes” correspondent Byron Pitts was on assignment last night with colleagues: “We all raised a glass for our friend,” wrote Pitts, adding, “Harold was one of the funniest men I’ve ever known. Always welcoming, always willing to share his wisdom with those of us coming along,” said Pitts.

Russ Mitchell, anchor of the “CBS Evening News” Sunday edition, added, “Harold was my Angel. And correspondent Randall Pinkston, said Dow “was a trailblazer, a great journalist, a great friend and mentor. I shall miss him enormously.”

In a press release, Dow’s “48 Hours” boss Susan Zirinsky writes, “It was his humanity, which was felt by everyone he encountered, even in his toughest interviews, that truly defined the greatness of his work. He was the most selfless man I have known.”
