Deaths of Minor Celebrities


I think, therefore I am, I think ...
Jonathan Coleman, 65, radio/tv personality

What a shock! He's been on the TV forever. Was there any press about him having prostate cancer? If so, I never heard about it.

Yeah I remember him from the Simon Townsend’s Wonder World days - compulsory after school viewing, and Jono’s report was usually the highlight. No I hadn’t heard he was sick, he was still on Studio 10 as far as I knew.


Dieter Brummer, 45, Home & Away actor

So sad
He had me watching, the only time I have ever watched H&A, was during his starring years
His comedy act with his sidekick was classic
The old guy was always chasing the funny rascals

Brian Henderson, longtime Channel Nine Sydney news presenter, died aged 89. Always struck me as an absolute gentleman.

Henderson holds the record for the longest-serving television news presenter, having read either the weekend or the weeknight news on Sydney station TCN-9 from January 1957 until his retirement 45 years later.
