Queensland Premier Campbell Newman has paid his respects to veteran radio announcer Haydn Sargent.
The much-loved media personality passed away peacefully this morning after a long battle with illness.
“On behalf of my Government and the people of Queensland I extend my condolences to Mr. Sargent’s family.” Premier Newman said.
“Mr. Sargent was a pioneer of talkback radio, becoming a household name in the 1970’s.”
“He had a loyal following of listeners who would hang on every word.”
“He will be mourned by his wife Norma, his five children and nine grandchildren.” Premier Newman said.
