Broadcaster Bob Friend dies

Veteran newscaster Bob Friend has died from cancer at the age of 70. Bob started his broadcasting career at BBC Radio 4 in 1969 and went on to become one of the most recognised and distinguished journalists on television.

Bob retired from Sky News just five years ago – the station which he joined at its launch in 1989.

Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corporation, told Sky News that Bob was "a distinguished journalist and an admired broadcaster.

"He was quick to understand the power of non-stop programming. He was there at the beginning of that long, hard road we all had to travel to make Sky News what it is today"
