ITN Statement On Sir Alastair Burnet

Commenting on the sad news of the passing of former ITN presenter Sir Alastair Burnet, who was the authoritative voice of ITN for many years, the CEO of ITN John Hardie said:


“ITN stands on the shoulders of giants, none greater than Sir Alastair Burnet. He defined newscasting for a generation and his influence is still clearly evident today. He set the bar to a standard that has never been surpassed and perhaps not even equalled. Sir Alastair will be sorely missed by many here at ITN, but his legacy lives on.”
