Posted in BLOG_2016Very saddened to learn of the death of former BBC colleague and friend, Austin Hunter, in an accident in Bahrain. A true professional, Austin remained calm in the most stressful situations and covered stories from the troubles in Northern Ireland with the utmost sensitivity and respect for all involved. It was always a joy to spend time in Austin's company whether in a work situation or socially. Northern Ireland has lost a great journalist and a great human being. He'll be sadly missed.
