CBS News correspondent Harold Dow, who won five news Emmys and the George Foster Peabody award, died Saturday after an apparent acute asthma attack while driving near his home in Hackensack, NJ. He was 62. He had been hospitalized earlier in the week after experiencing severe symptoms of adult onset asthma. WCBS-TV said that he had decided a few weeks ago to retire from the network he had worked for for 38 years, most recently as a correspondent for 48 Hours Mystery. In a statement on Sunday, Susan Zirinsky, the program’s producer, said: “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.”
