Remembering Our Academy Colleagues
Veteran newsreader Bill Pitt (80) died on Friday 17th November 2017 after a short illness. He had been a senior member of the Academy FM Thanet news team since joining the station in 2013, and was a helpful mentor to less experienced colleagues.
Station manager Bob Mower said: “We’re in total shock. “He was a lively character who’d had an interesting life, and he was a natural on the air. And with his particular background, he was also a natural at our public events. “He was a lovely bloke and he’ll be greatly missed.
