The Dom Post reports:
Veteran political journalist Ian Templeton is to be recognised for a half-century of political reporting with an Honorary Doctorate from Massey University. The doctorate, to be presented at a College of Business graduation ceremony tomorrow, is in recognition of his contribution to journalism, the parliamentary press gallery and the New Zealand Press Council. He has been reporting from the press gallery since 1957. Massey University vice-chancellor Steve Maharey said Mr Templeton was a reminder that “old-style ethics and standards are just as relevant today as ever”.
Congratulations Dr Templeton. Ian is a legend who was still working at his 80th birthday. His analysis was as sharp in the 2000s as it was in the 1950s.Tags: Ian Templeton
