ormer editor-in-chief of ITN Sir David Nicholas has died at the age of 92.

Sir David joined ITN in 1960 and spent almost 32 years at the television production company, eventually becoming the editor-in-chief and later its chief executive.

In a post paying tribute to Sir David, his former employer described him as “one of the great TV innovators”.

On Twitter, ITN wrote: “We are deeply saddened at the death of former ITN Editor-in-Chief, Sir David Nicholas.

“A hugely important figure in our history & one of the great TV innovators, his pioneering techniques continue to influence broadcast news today.

“Our sincere condolences to Sir David’s family.”

Sir David was the producer of the first News at Ten and organised coverage of seminal moments in history, including that of the Apollo moon landings, the Falklands War and war in Afghanistan, as well as both UK and US elections.

He was a proud father, grandfather and was shortly to be a great-grandfather. He will be missed

In a statement, his son James and daughter Helen said: “Our father led a very long and full life. It is has been very comforting to receive so many heart felt messages of condolence and it is wonderful to know how highly respected he was by his many TV news colleagues and friends.

“He was a proud father, grandfather and was shortly to be a great-grandfather. He will be missed.”

In August 1952, Sir David married his childhood sweetheart Juliet, who he met at the age of eight at a birthday party.

Juliet died in January 2013.

Sir David was made a CBE in 1982, and was later knighted in the 1989 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

He retired from his role of chairman at ITN in 1991.

Sir David leaves two children, Helen and James, and grandchildren Matthew, Olivia and Alexander.
