Highly respected journalist, author and presenter Peter Luck has died at the age of 73. Luck had been battling from Parkinson’s Disease for some time.
Luck became a household name in Australia following his work on such esteemed current affairs programs as This Day Tonight, Four Corners, Sunday, Today Tonight and Inside Edition.
He also authored a number of best selling books including This Fabulous Century and Australian Icons: Things That Make Us What We Are.
Close friend and fellow journalist Mike Carlton confirmed Luck’s death this morning.
“I’m deeply, deeply sad because he was a true friend, a great friend and one of Australia’s finest television journalists,” Carlton wrote to social media.
“Peter was one of the great ABC television journalists, he was one of the pioneers of This Day Tonight, that trailblazing current affairs show.
“He was immensely creative, he was funny, he was knowledgeable and he cared very deeply about public broadcast.”
