Newscaster dies from cancer at 48

POPULAR CCTV newscaster Luo Jing died yesterday morning. He was 48.

Luo was diagnosed with lymphoma and was first admitted to hospital last September.

"Luo was a leading figure in broadcasting," CCTV said.

Luo was married in 1988 and has a 14-year-old son.

Apple Li, a colleague, said it was a loss that Luo had died at such a young age.

"He was absolutely one of the best anchormen in the country," she added.

Luo, a native of southwest Chongqing Municipality, joined CCTV's 7pm News service after his graduation from the Communication University of China in 1983. The news service has been China's most popular news program for decades.
