Terrible news from the Herald – Marcia Russell died this morning. There will be obituaries elsewhere from people who knew her better than I did. All I can say is that she was hugely important in New Zealand journalism, not only for being the editor of Thursday but that would be enough. Her work elsewhere was outstanding – I hope she gets the credit she deserves for TV3 news. She was also a wonderful colleague for me at the Listener and Cue, and ever after was fantastic company.
