Tributes paid to BBC Wales’ Sian Pari Huws

Tributes have been paid to Welsh broadcaster Sian Pari Huws who has died at the age of 55 from cancer.

BBC Wales director Rhodri Talfan Davies led the tributes, telling BBC.co.uk: “Sian’s passion for Wales, its people and its rich culture shone through her work. A journalist never afraid to cause trouble but a champion too – for our arts, for our language.

“We’ll miss her warmth, her humour and her endless curiosity. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are of course with her family today.”

Sian Gwynedd, the head of Welsh language programmes and services for BBC Wales: “I believe that it’s for the quality of her journalism that she will be remembered primarily.

“She was a bold and strong interviewer, and she was just as comfortable interviewing politicians as she was interviewing people on the street in Bangor.

“She won the respect of the production teams she worked with and they will have very fond memories of her.”

Sian was a presenter of Radio Wales’ Good Morning and Good Evening Wales programmes, and also worked for BBC Radio 3. BBC Radio Wales broadcast a moving tribute to her on Monday morning.
