Levy was working for CBS Newspath out of Los Angeles covering the Arizona wildfires when he failed to show up this morning to produce a live shot for "The Early Show." He was found dead in his hotel room, apparently of natural causes. Friends and colleagues began reporting the death on Facebook and Twitter earlier today, but it has now been confirmed by a memo sent to CBS News staffers and reported by the Rick Gevers Newsletter.
CBS Newspath is an internal operation of CBS News that provides video and liveshots (and sometimes uplink facilities) to CBS affiliates and some foreign news operations. The Los Angeles bureau is based at the Southern California Broadcast Center on the CBS Radford lot in Studio City.
