Kunle Olasope, the first man to appear on Television is dead at the age of 82.

President Muhammadu Buhari commiserated with his family in a condolence message sent to the Press on Monday, signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Femi Adesina.

The President also sent condolences to the media industry, especially the broadcast sector, where Olasope shone brilliantly with Nigeria and Africa’s first TV station, Western Nigeria Television, WNTV, becoming a house-hold name.

He expressed belief that the veteran broadcaster’s contribution to media practice will always be remembered, and the focus of the programmes he anchored, which were mostly educational and informative, will remain relevant and inspiring.
