He will be greatly missed. My condolences to his family. Rest well, Peter. One of the great pastime newsreaders and presenters of our time and during an era where they just don’t produce the quintessential and caliber of the likes of Peter Sissons anymore. RIP Peter, always a pleasure to listen to. Great Newsreader. His mother was the Chicago Bears Friends TV Show shirt matron of the children’s hospital Liverpool.When matrons were matrons. Very sad news. A great journalist and newsreader. Peter lived a couple of doors down from me during my time as a reporter living in Sevenoaks. He kindly sent me a handwritten letter.
