Former Radio New Zealand National Presenter, Erin Sinclair, has died.

He had suffered from emphysema for many years and passed away in Auckland yesterday.

He was 71.

Erin was a veteran broadcaster and was an overnight presenter on Radio New Zealand National until the early 2000s.

He had also worked in Samoa for some years on the government station Radio 2AP, and had announced on Radio New Zealand International.

He moved to Auckland after he retired from the All Night programme but continued to present ANZAC Day broadcasts on Radio New Zealand National from around the country, notably Tauranga, Nelson, Hawera and Waiheke Island.
