ANOTHER LEGEND has left us. John Kalinowski was with ABC in Port Moresby for many years and there at the transition to the National Broadcasting Commission.
After returning to Australia, he was with ABC in Brisbane for many decades until he retired.
John had been unwell for some years and, at the time of his death, was almost blind.
He lived in the Brisbane riverside suburb of Chelmer with his wife Patra, who he was married to for over 50 years.
John was a fine broadcaster with a deep resonating voice.
He was also a delightful character and a very special guy.
