Former Trent presenter dies

Graham Knight, one of the original presenters at Radio Trent, has died from cancer at the age of 60.

Dick Stone, current programme director at Trent FM, has paid tribute in the local [link=]newspaper[/link]: "Graham was one of the pioneers of broadcasting in Nottingham, as one of the original presenters on Trent FM he helped make us the success we are today. He will be sadly missed and was one of radio's gents – always considerate, thought-provoking and respectful.

"His energy, hard work and insight in the early days of Trent FM paved the way for a long and successful career in radio in the East Midlands.

"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of one of Nottingham's modern-day legends."

For the last seven years, Graham had run a tea popular tea shop in Sherwood.
