Rosemary Margan dies, aged 80
Melbourne has lost a media trailblazer with the death of Rosemary Margan.
She died aged 80 last night on the Gold Coast, where she had been living in recent years.
Rosemary was a pioneer of Australian TV, working alongside the biggest names in the business — Bert Newton and Graham Kennedy to name just two — in a career spanning more than four decades.
At 3AW she was much-loved by staff and listeners for her 19 years on 3AW Mornings, working alongside her brother-in-law Neil Mitchell and retiring in 2007.
