Veteran broadcaster Jim Reed has died from lung cancer at the age of 75.
Reed has worked as a writer, producer, director, reporter and news anchor for CTV, TVO and CBC, The Canadian Press reports. He’s won three Gemini Awards and has freelanced for The Associated Press, The New York Times and The Globe and Mail.
“Journalism is nothing but the effort to get as close to Truth as possible,” Reed wrote on his blog, “Attention to detail and a respect for facts are hallmarks of good journalism. But the public, including bloggers, have a responsibility to pay attention too. Read accurately, analyze carefully and don’t jump to conclusions.”
