HKJA Deeply Saddened by the Passing of Nick Griffin

HKJA Deeply Saddened by the Passing of Nick Griffin


Dear Members,

Nick Griffin (李奇), our former Executive Committee member and former Chairperson (Year 1978-79), passed away this morning at the Tai Po Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital. He had long been a champion of press freedom and the well-being of all in our calling. And he had continued to serve the industry until the very last moment. The Hong Kong Journalists Association is deeply saddened by his passing.

Nick was admitted to the hospital on 29th December, just after his 60th birthday. The initial diagnosis was that he might have just got the flu bug. But his condition deteriorated suddenly a couple of days ago, with the rapid failure of various organs.

Nick served the news industry for over 30 years, having worked in Commercial Radio, TVB, ATV and Metro Radio which he served until his last day. Nick was also a press freedom fighter who been selected by his peers to sit on the Consultative Committee of the Basic Law to reflect the views of the industry at a critical moment in Hong Kongs political development.

Nick will be deeply missed by the HKJA and all those who have worked with him over the years.
