Michael Nicholson

Statement from ITN chief executive John Hardie on former ITN journalist Michael Nicholson, who has passed away aged 79.

“One of the greatest reporters of his generation, Michael Nicholson is rightly regarded as a true legend of ITN. As a journalist he is renowned and revered throughout our industry and beyond for his courage, his intelligence, and his compassion.

Michael made it his life´s work to shine a light upon the world’s stories, even – perhaps especially – in the most dangerous and challenging of circumstances. From Saigon to Sarajevo, the stories he has covered in a career spanning decades are simply too numerous to mention in full, but will live long in the memory of all who have seen his work. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and loved ones tonight.”
