“Dom was a great broadcaster and a brilliant man. He loved sports and radio, so he had the perfect job,” said radio sports news editor Colin Patterson.
“You could hear the excitement in his voice as he read the sports news on the air. He had a long and successful career with the BBC – 30 years on many of our local radio stations, and for the past 10 years” worked for BBC Sport.
“He will be greatly missed by his colleagues and listeners on BBC radio. Our thoughts are with his family at this terrible time.”
