Many Wellingtonians will be saddened:
Veteran broadcaster Garry Ward passed away at his Kapiti Coast home this morning (Thursday).
Ward, 68, worked in broadcasting for 50 years.
He covered several Commonwealth and Olympic games.
He was the host of The Great Weekender show on NewstalkZB.
I was a regular listener to Ward at the weekend. Never met him, but felt I knew him. A sad loss.
