Ed Bradley, the 60 Minutes co-anchor who grew up in Philadelphia and reported for WDAS radio in the early '60s, will have a homecoming of sorts on Saturday.

Nine years after his death at the age of 65, the legendary newsman will be remembered at a ceremony at which a stretch of City Avenue between Monument Avenue and Presidential Boulevard will be renamed Ed Bradley Way.

Among those expected at the 1 p.m. dedication are Bradley's widow, Patricia Blanchet, CBS3 anchor Ukee Washington, WDAS' Patty Jackson and Cherri Gregg, president of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists.

Tamica Tanksley will represent the office of state Sen. Vincent Hughes and the Soulful Sound Classy Brass, from Bradley's alma mater, Cheyney University, will perform under the direction of band director and professor Allen Gardner, according to CBS3 and WDAS.
