Veteran broadcaster Alan Whicker's contribution to British broadcasting is "immeasurable", former ITV and BBC chairman Michael Grade said today.
Mr Grade said:
Alan's contribution to the golden age of British broadcasting is immeasurable. His highly individualistic style belied the sharpest journalistic brain.
He was one of our greatest observers of human behaviour. His listening skills, his sharp and spare commentary writing talents have never been matched.
He managed always to combine the highest quality with popularity. Much imitated but never equalled, there will never be another.
