Incredible sadness and disbelief.

We lost a dear friend and colleague a couple of days ago. Ken Wanninger was engaged with the world and enjoyed great conversations on so many topics and his loves and passions came through in his work. He had a deep love of film and music and his creativity was on full display in the radio and TV show.

We are honoured to have been in his company, and if you enjoyed our shows, you should know that Ken played a major role in making them sing. Just weeks ago, he worked on the Prince Charles special staying late to ensure the bio was the best it could be - working until he was completely happy with it. It is even still unbelievable to have to write in the past tense as this has been shocking news. A life cut too short.

Much Love and condolences to his family and friends,

George, Tania and the GTonight team
