Veteran broadcaster Sir David Frost has died from a heart attack at the age of age of 74.

He had been giving a speech aboard the cruise ship the Queen Elizabeth on Saturday night.

Sir David Frost, who probably interviewed more world figures from royalty, politics, the Church, show-business and virtually everywhere else, than any other living broadcaster, was the most illustrious TV inquisitor of his generation.

He not only won virtually all the major television awards available, but his professional activities were so diverse that he was once described as 'a one-man conglomerate'.

A statement from his family said: 'His family are devastated and ask for privacy at this difficult time.

'A family funeral will be held in the near future and details of a memorial service will be announced in due course.'

I would have thought he was older than 74.....
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I thought so, too. They showed some footage of him back when he was doing Inside Edition back in the late 1980s. He looked old back then, and he was only about 50.

In fact, I was surprised he was even still alive.

I must salute Sir David Frost.  He was a cigar aficionado  and a man of exquisite taste.........how appropriate that he died on a cruise.......

He interviewed about 15 of the most recent US Presidents and British Prime Ministers.

Asked who he admired the most as a leader,  Frost answered G.H.W. Bush.
