He died from complications caused by an aneurism in his aorta, CBS said. He had undergone surgery for the condition last summer. Mr. Rudd's career at CBS spanned 20 years. Before his stint on the Morning News, his beats included Moscow and Berlin. Mr. Rudd, with a distinctively gravel-laden voice, anchored the Morning News from 1973-1977.
