  • Newsreaders become like a family member, you see them on an almost daily basis.  They help us through traumatic events and join us in our celebrations, so when let's us down, by doing a Huw, we are shocked and we mourn their passing as acutely as any celebrity.  RIP to a giant of his profession.
