McDonald's CEO Dies of Apparent Heart Attack

McDonald's names Charlie Bell as CEO and president after CEO Jim Cantalupo dies of an apparent heart attack during a convention of McDonald's franchisees. Cantalupo came out of retirement to re-focus McDonald's on customer service and new menu items rather than rapid expansion of the restaurant chain. Bell is expected to maintain that strategy. NPR's Matt Hackworth reports.
