Vale: John Miller

Brisbane broadcaster John Miller has died following a serious fall at his home nearly two weeks ago. He was 59.

Miller was a Queensland broadcaster and radio personality for decades, and was part of 4BC for more than ten years. But he was also well-regarded for his career in television. Miller was a major player behind the scenes back when Brisbane still made its own current affairs shows such as Seven’s State Affairs.

He was most recently involved in consultancy and private production work.

Yesterday on Twitter Adam Boland ‏said: “Thoughts are with John Miller’s family and the team at 4BC. He was a special broadcaster and a Brisbane media icon. Very sad news.”

ACA‘s Chris Allen said, “He was one of my first bosses in TV. Taught me not take myself too seriously! RIP John Miller.”

Jillian Whiting said: “Vale John Miller. Thanks for the laughs over the years. Radio and TV will miss you and so will I. RIP.”

Brenden Wood ‏said: “Saddened to hear about the passing of my former neighbour & Brisbane broadcasting colleague John Miller. #RIPJohnMiller”

Nine News Brisbane also included a tribute last night.

  1. RIP John. A warm and generous, very funny but brilliant man who, wether in his serious journalist or entertainment/entertainer mode, knew the business through and through.
