Bradley, a 26-year veteran of the CBS newsmagazine, died of leukemia on Thursday.
Sunday’s special includes Steve Kroft’s interviews with some of Bradley’s closest friends, musician Jimmy Buffett, journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Marsalis. Morley Safer will review the legacy of Bradley’s estimated 500 “60 Minutes” stories.
Lesley Stahl will do a profile of Bradley, from his childhood in Philadelphia to his job at “60 Minutes.”
It will air in the “60 Minutes” time slot of 7 p.m. ET.
