ANC communications study group sends condolences to Rowena Baird's Family

08 October 2018

The ANC Study Group on Communications sends its deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of veteran radio journalist, Ms Rowena Baird, who sadly passed away last Friday after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Ms. Baird was a seasoned radio broadcaster whose career spanned over 30 years. She began her career with the former Bophuthatswana Radio BOP in the 1980's, and later joined the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) as a presenter and news reader on a number of SABC radio platforms. She was a senior presenter on SAFM's week day show, Morning Talk, before being moved to a weekend slot at the time of her passing.

She had an immense contribution in the development of young radio presenters and news readers at the public broadcaster. Her expertise will be dearly missed and her untimely passing comes at a great loss to the SABC family and the country as a whole. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.

Issued by the Whip of the ANC Study Group on Communications, comrade Mziwamadoda Kalako.
