The ABC is grieving the death of Mark Colvin, a four-decade veteran of the broadcaster, at the age of 65.
A prominent part of the ABC, Colvin was a reporter, correspondent and presenter. Colvin was admired and respected by colleagues and audiences alike for his formidable intellect, sharp wit and absolute integrity.
His loss will be deeply felt in Australia and around the world, and especially by his two sons and other family members.
ABC Managing Director Michelle Guthrie said: “For many Australians, Mark’s steady and measured voice as host of PM brought them the essential news of the day and kept them informed about events of national and international importance.
“We will miss him enormously, and extend our thoughts to his family and friends.”
Director, News Gaven Morris said: “Mark was one of Australia’s finest journalists. He leaves an unfillable void as a journalist, a colleague and a friend.
“He was an important part of the ABC community as a mentor and teacher to young reporters and as a voice of wisdom and experience to many older ones. Our reporters and producers felt strengthened by his presence in the newsroom and emboldened by the sound of his voice on our airwaves.”
