Vale Vaughan Harvey

Staff Writer

He was a legendary South Australian broadcaster and trainer, and sadly Vaughan Harvey has passed away.

“Three things are synonymous with South Australia: Farmers Union Iced Coffee; Balfours’ pies and those dulcet, smooth as aged whiskey tones of news reader and friend, Vaughan Harvey.”

“While Vaughan was News Director of 5KA in the ’70s, he was also in charge of the School of Radio for the South Australian Broadcast Network. It would be mind blowing to go back and check the names that went through that school.

Vaughan eventually left 5KA. After a short stint at 5AD alongside Rodger Cardwell (the ‘Cardwell Harvey News Report’),

Vaughan didn’t put his feet up and watch the multi-hued sunsets of retirement; he kept Australia’s great radio and television talent coming through his Vaughan Harvey Radio School. Many of us radio people also had the pleasure teaching at his school.”

Some of words that David ‘Daisy’ Day wrote about Vaughan Harvey is his autobiography called ‘Rock Jock’.

We will publish funeral details once confirmed.
