`
I have incredibly sad news which I need to share with you all.
 
As many of you will know, the extraordinary Deb Cameron has been battling serious illness for several months, following her earlier recovery from breast cancer. Tragically she passed away quite suddenly on Saturday.
 
I know you will join with me in expressing our deep sadness and sympathy to Deb’s family and close friends, of which she has many.
 
Deb was an amazingly talented woman. When she joined KJA some seven years ago after leaving the ABC as their morning broadcaster, I remember saying that her arrival had instantly doubled the intellectual capital of the organisation. And this remained the case for whilst ever she was with us.
 
I know, we will all miss her intelligence, inventiveness and innovative approach to her work but we will also miss her warm spirit, love of life, and the guidance, wisdom and mentoring she provided to us all.
 
This has been a very sad six months for the KJA family after we also lost Toni in December.
 
Be kind to yourselves and spend some extra time with the people you love and treasure each day.
 
Kathy Jones
Executive Chair, KJA
