The 68-year-old Reasoner was recovering from the operation and was also suffering from pneumonia, said "60 Minutes" spokesman Roy Brunett.Reasoner, who retired from "60 Minutes" last month, entered Norwalk Hospital in Connecticut on June 11 and underwent surgery the next day, Brunett said.

Reasoner spent 15 years as a correspondent on "60 Minutes." He was with CBS News for 27 years.

After leaving "60 Minutes," he planned to continue as a contributing correspondent.

Reasoner is married and lives in Westport, Conn. He has seven children from a previous marriage.
