Just heard of the death of my very dear old colleague at TVNZ. Phil Wallington at 75. He kept me laughing when he worked as a Senior Producer there. Had suffered a long illness ,nursed by the lovely Carol and family. Phil was loved and respected throughout broadcast journalism in both the Southern and Northern hemisphere. He will be genuinely missed. The hours we enjoyed over a lunchtime pint ,putting New Zealand journalism and some of its participants to rights were spectacularly entertaining, I am in deep shock. Loved you Phil. Bless !

VALE Phil Wallington

This morning at 6.30am our beloved husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle and brother-in-law Maurice Phillip Wallington died from heart failure. Phil was 75 years old.
Phil’s last wish was to die at home, unfortunately the medical system failed him.
His doctor would not provide him with Palliative care, and so I very reluctantly let him be taken to Palmerston North Hospital.
He was admitted to hospital at about 1.30pm…I was not with him, they called at 6.22am. The hospital is an hour away.
Funeral arrangements to come later.
If I have missed telling anyone he was particularly close to, please accept my sincere apologies.

Dear friend and mentor Phil Wallington, random quoter of Shakespeare and limericks, learned, fearless, with your razor-sharp wit and intellect, you were the source of much wisdom and humour and a generous, uncompromising man. I will miss you. Rest, now. Aroha nui

Very sad to hear of the passing of Phil Wallington – a great Australian New Zealander and one of the true characters of Television Current Affairs – he told so many stories and so many will be told about him – Vale mate.

I’m so sad to say that Phil Wallington, one of the greatest characters I’ve ever met, died this morning. Phil had more influence on my working life than anyone else I’ve ever known. His approach to journalism, his love of storytelling, the way he treated people around him.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
