Loss of a legend; Sir Charles Wheeler

In the death of Sir Charles Wheeler the world of broadcasting has lost a gentleman journalist whose dedication to the profession saw him work well into his retirement years.

In a speech made at the Institute’s Presidential inauguration a couple of years ago, Sir Charles’s commitment to the profession was obvious in his passion for his work.  He had lost none of the charm and warmth which endeared him to both colleagues and viewers alike.

We are sorry to learn of his death and send our condolences and very best wishes to Lady Wheeler and his family.
