Former Calendar presenter dies aged 66

The former Calendar presenter Marylyn Webb has died at the age of 66 at her home in Lincolnshire.

A familiar face for nearly 20 years, Marylyn was one of the most popular presenters on Yorkshire Television. As a reporter she covered some of the biggest national stories including the five year 'Yorkshire Ripper' investigation.

Former Calendar presenter Alan Hardwick said today:

“Marylyn was for many years the female face of Calendar and a very good friend. She had a special relationship with our viewers that has stood the test of time; whenever anyone talks to me about Calendar – which, even after all this time, is often – they always mention Marylyn with great fondness.

"She was professional, she was kind, and I will miss her a great deal. My deepest condolences are with Alan and the family."

We'll be paying tribute to Marylyn on Calendar tonight at 6pm.
