Sir Paul Holmes: a tribute from Campbell Live
Friday 1 Feb 2013 5:08 p.m.
Sir Paul Holmes died today.
Many of our colleagues worked with him.
Our executive producer, Pip Keane, was formerly executive producer of the Holmes show.
Mike McRoberts, Hamish Clark, Simon Shepherd, Duncan Garner, all of them worked on the Holmes show and loved it.
Holmes loved broadcasting, and devoted his life to it.
We all knew him, we knew his voice and his face and his name, and he became a huge part of the life of this country.
But to most of us, he was on the telly and the radio.
Today, his family must be feeling a terrible loss. His children, who shared him with us so much, perhaps more than children really want to share their dad.
To them, his wife, his brother and his mates who adored him, we send our condolences.
Sir Paul Holmes, who reigned supreme on radio and television and lived life with a grand appetite, and was a husband and a dad, gone. But remembered by everyone.
