A 27-year veteran of CBS News died last night at his Manhattan home, reports TVNewser. Four-time Emmy-winning producer Michael Rosenbaum, 64, died from a brain tumor that had been discovered last September.
Rosenbaum was the CBS News Tel Aviv bureau chief from 1989-1995, working with CBS stars Bob Simon and Dan Rather on Middle East reports.
CBS News Chairman and "60 Minutes" Executive Producer Jeff Fager, who worked with Rosenbaum, issued a statement about his colleague, saying, “Michael was a great friend to so many of us at CBS News. He was a real newsman who was naturally curious and skeptical of almost everything. He was also fun to be around, a caring friend, and a beloved member of our family at CBS News."
Rosenbaum is survived by his brother, David, and sister, Judy Witt.
