← back to all news NMA tribute to Robin Burgess
Following the death of former CN Group chief executive Robin Burgess from cancer at the age of 68, the News Media Association has paid tribute.
Chief executive David Newell said: “Robin Burgess was a newspaper publisher of principle and integrity, who understood the community role of local newspapers and their capacity for public good. He served the Newspaper Society as President and in this role and other industry positions was a robust defender of the freedom to publish and the need for the industry to stand together against state interference and regulation.
“On all the big calls , his judgment was right, and the newsmedia world will miss his strong , independent voice.’
