Patricia Blanchet, widow of Ed Bradley, will lead a loving tribute to Ed Bradley, a Philadelphia-born legendary journalist. The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission has created an historical marker to be placed in West Fairmount Park, not far from the radio station where Bradley began his broadcast career at WDAS on Edgely Avenue. Bradley would have turned 80 in June 2021, so the celebration is a fitting tribute to this trailblazing son of Philadelphia. In addition to the unveiling of the historical marker highlighting Bradley’s life, a small grove of nine trees has been planted in the surrounding area to further enhance Fairmount Park.
