World business report bbc presenter dies
Samuel Nyambu, Nairobi, Kenya: As an ardent listener of the BBC, Dumor's voice had become a signature for all news in Africa and my encounter with him on TV matched the energy and enthusiasm that came across while on radio.
I feel lucky to have been a witness to that part of the Mandela story.
Hard to believe I will not see his smiling face and down to earth assessments of his home roots, Africa, again. But also with gratitude.
Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama said on Twitter that his country had lost one of its finest ambassadors. I will look back on it with a sense of sadness. A new newsroom and several state-of-the-art studios were built. The channel started broadcasting on 11 March , after two weeks of real-time pilots, initially as a half-hour bulletin once a day at GMT. He travelled across Africa, meeting the continent's top entrepreneurs and reporting on the latest business trends around the continent. My thanks to his family and BBC for sharing him with the world. Vanessa Bobai, Ottawa, Canada: Komla was a great man and very passionate about his job. He was a regular presenter of Focus on Africa and had fronted the programme the day before he died. High-definition[ edit ] As a result of the move to Broadcasting House, BBC World News gained high-definition studios and equipment to be able to broadcast in high-definition. He was there to moderate some of the sessions and I was covering for Ghana Business News. I watched Komla on Friday evening full of life and humour. You will be missed Komla. He made a mark on radio journalism in Ghana, and was a great source of inspiration for many Ghanaian youth, especially, those who wanted to get into radio. Amongst all of the BBC's many great and famous human assets, Komla Dumor's name should today be irrevocably established.
