CBS News reports that Adrian "Clem" Taylor, a television news producer who recently won a Peabody and an Emmy for an uplifting 60 Minutes segment about an improbable orchestra in the heart of the Congo, died Friday.

Taylor, 60, had been battling pancreatic cancer since last May and passed away at a hospital in Newark, NJ. "Clem was a wonderful man, a great friend to so many of us, and a world-class producer," said Jeff Fager, 60 Minutes executive producer and the chairman of CBS News.

Taylor spent nearly 20 years at CBS News, the last four with 60 Minutes. He held a variety of producing jobs in the news division, rising to senior producer for The Early Show in the late 1990s. Before that, he served as a producer in Washington, Dallas and New York. He covered the White House during the Reagan administration.
