Harold Dow with emmy trophies

Emmy-winning CBS News correspondent Harold Dow, who helped shape the documentary program “48 Hours” and covered the kidnapping of Patricia Hearst and the Sept. 11 attacks, has died. He was 62.

Mr. Dow died suddenly Saturday morning in New Jersey, network spokeswoman Louise Bashi said. He lived in Hackensack, but it wasn’t immediately clear if he’d been at home.

Mr. Dow had been a correspondent for “48 Hours” since 1990. His 40 years with the network and its affiliates also included reporting for “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather” and “CBS News Sunday Morning.”

Text continues after Pictures of the Week gallery:

A “48 Hours” report on runaways earned him a George Foster Peabody Award. He also won five Emmys for work including coverage of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, and of U.S. troops’ movement into Bosnia in 1996.

Mr. Dow landed an exclusive interview with kidnapping victim Hearst in December 1976, and he had the first network interview with O.J. Simpson following the 1994 killing of his ex-wife. He barely escaped one of the falling twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, the network said.

Mr. Dow was a contributor to “48 Hours on Crack Street,” the 1986 documentary that led to the creation of the weekly “48 Hours.” Before that, he had been a co-anchor on “CBS News Nightwatch” and a correspondent and reporter at the CBS News Los Angeles bureau. He started his career with the network as a broadcast associate in 1972.

He is survived by his wife, Kathy, and their three children.
