TimBickerstaffVeteran New Zealand radio broadcaster Tim Bickerstaff has passed away at home in Whitianga at the age of 67. It is understood Tim suffered a massive heart attack on Saturday (31 October) and his body was discovered by local children who had come knocking on Halloween Night.
Many would remember Tim from his time spent working at Melbourne station 3DB in the 1960's. He soon returned to New Zealand where he pioneered talkback on Sportsline with Geoff Sinclair on Radio 1 before moving onto more general talkback with his two-hour Radio Pacific show.
