When Ian Richards asked for a tribute to our extraordinary colleague, Anne Dunn, who passed away on July 1, 2012, after a long illness, it was hard to know where to begin. This is a very difficult farewell. Anne always seemed invincible, somehow bulletproof. She was a person of enviable vitality, a prodigious work ethic, and an unflappable can-do approach to life that inspired colleagues and students alike. News of her death came as a shock to many. Robbed of the chance to say goodbye, and thank you, we are left to mourn the passing of a remarkable broadcaster, journalism educator and media scholar who will be remembered for her academic leadership in the media and communications field, her bridge-building between industry and academe and her life-long commitment to public service broadcasting.
