One of Papua New Guinea's longest serving and most revered journalists, Ian Boden, has died at the age of 67.

Mr Boden, who had moved to PNG from Australia in 1962, had been ill for some time before passing away in hospital in Madang.

Much of his working life was dedicated to PNG's The National newspaper where he became associate editor and a columnist.

In 2003, he took up a teaching position with Divine Word University in Madang as a journalism lecturer.
