Veteran broadcaster and leading internet journalist Peter Sinclair died this morning according to news reports.
Sinclair was diagnosed with leukemia in March, but has continued working in radio as well as writing his IT column for the New Zealand Herald. He has also been writing about his life.
Sinclair will be best remembered as host of a number of TV shows in the 1970s and 1980s including Mastermind and University Challenge. In the Queen's Birthday honours in June, he was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to broadcasting.
