2GB are reporting the passing of Mike Willesee.
Statement from Seven:
“We are deeply saddened to hear Veteran Australian television reporter, Mike Willesee, has lost his battle with throat cancer at the age of 76.
The Perth-born journalist was known for his masterful interviewing skills.
Willesee dominated Australian television current affairs for 50 years setting an industry standard that few were able to match.
His final major TV investigation was for Seven’s flagship news and public affairs programme Sunday Night.
Our thoughts are with his family.”
How eery that John Kennerly passed away on wednesday and 2 days later the reporter who did the big piece on KAK & John for Sunday Night, Mike Willesee has gone. An eery coincidence
