Biographical Note

Edward “Ed” Bliss, Jr. was born on July 30, 1912 to Edward Lydston and May Bortz Bliss in Fuzhou, China. His father was a medical missionary and his mother was a teacher. After graduating from college in 1935, he worked as a print journalist and a news editor for several small newspapers in Columbus, Ohio. Bliss married Lois Arnette on August 26, 1940 with whom he had two children.

In 1943, Bliss was hired by CBS to work the night shift. He was a producer and editor for Edward Murrow from 1945 to 1955. Bliss also served as an assistant to the president of CBS News in 1962 before becoming editor of “CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite” in 1963.

Bliss left CBS News in 1968 to establish the broadcast journalism program at the School of Communication at American University in Washington, D.C. He taught at American University until 1977. After retiring as a full professor, Bliss remained active as a news consultant for stations across the United States.

Bliss wrote Writing News for Broadcast, a journalism textbook first published in 1971. In 1991 he published Now the News: The Story of Broadcast Journalism. Bliss died in Alexandria, Virginia on November 25, 2002.
