Ritchie Cogan (1941-2017)
  • Sep 25, 2017

We are deeply saddened to hear that Ritchie Cogan died last Saturday night (24/09/2017). Ritchie died suddenly and without suffering.

He spent over 25 years working for the BBC, both in radio and television, and has always been an extremely active player in the media landscape throughout his whole career.

As Director of the "One World Broadcasting Trust" (now "One World Media") and as former Director of the "One World Group of Broadcasters", Ritchie helped us literally shaping ESoDoc back in 2004. He's been an inspiring trainer and tutor for many years both at ESoDoc and ZeLIG.

ESoDoc and ZeLIG Teams express their most sincere condolences on Ritchie's passing.
