Ray Hadley described him as a larger than life character, and a “giant of the TV industry”.
He spent four decades in the industry, driving both Channel 9 and 7 to ratings success.
“David was the boss of Channel 9 for 23 years, and I encountered him on many occasions, him and his darling wife Skye.”
He retired in 2012.
