Les Miller - Media Statement by 702 ABC Sydney

Presenter: Simon Marnie

It is with great sadness that 702 ABC Sydney farewells Weekend Woodie Les Miller, who passed away this morning.

Les, a stalwart of the 702 ABC Sydney Weekends landscape for the past 4 years was one of our beloved Weekend Woodies ...

He acquired something akin to cult status thanks to his often hysterical but always instructional co-presenting of the Weekend Woodies with fellow expert Peter Masia and 702 ABC Sydney presenter Simon Marnie. Listeners with no interest in home renovation would often tune in just to hear the highly entertaining banter that is the Weekend Woodies. Les was also a regular guest on ABC TV’s The New Inventors hosted by 702 presenter James O’Loghlin ...

All the staff at 702 ABC Sydney share their grief with Les' family and friends. Les was not only a colleague, he was a friend to all of us and his great wisdom, generosity and cheeky spirit inspired us all. We will miss him dearly ...
