He also filed a series of in-depth reports on issues plaguing the city of Detroit. Bradley spent several months in the spring and summer of 2010 traveling along the Gulf Coast covering the devastating impact of the BP oil spill, and was part of the ABC team which was first to overnight and transmit pictures at night from the source of the oil spill.
Prior to his assignment as a domestic digital reporter, Bradley was an integral part of the ABC News team covering the 2008 campaign and election. He took lead reporting duties for the Political Unit’s coverage of campaign fundraising and political ads. He also spent time on the campaign trail, filling in as an embedded reporter covering Barack Obama and Rudy Giuliani. He covered the vice presidential debate and the three presidential debates, and also created and anchored a weekly show for ABCNews.com, “Sunday Sound.”
Bradley first joined the Political Unit in Washington as a field producer, covering the 2006 midterm election. He was a co-author of “The Note,” and reported on key U.S. House and Senate races. He was also part of the team producing the Politics Page for ABCNEWS.com.
