A tribute package was then played, showing highlights from Nick’s career.

“Nick Way was a gifted storyteller. Across three decades, he never failed to form a deep connection with those he covered, often remaining in close contact with them long after the news cameras had stopped rolling.”

“His stories shone through even our darkest chapters, the Bali bombings. Many of the survivors still call Nick a very good friend.”

It continued, “Nick always gave a voice to those struggling to find their own. He championed so many wonderful causes and when it came to his own health struggle, he would dig in and raise tens of thousands of dollars for research.

‘Here in Ten, Nick taught so many the trade. We will never forget his beautiful smile and voice. We send our deepest condolences to his wife Karen and her family.’

Chris then returned to the screen, her eyes sparkling with emotion as she said: “Vale Nick, and our condolences to his family.”

Nick’s wife Karen, 29, revealed to The West Australian that Nick was in a specialist care facility in Cottesloe while she was in New Zealand for her nephew’s wedding when Nick “had a twist” and died from a suspected blood clot in his lungs.

“It was like he was waiting for me to be here in New Zealand to be with all my family and he made the decision that it was time to go,” she told the newspaper

“It was like he was waiting for me to be here in New Zealand to be with all my family and he made the decision that it was time to go,” she told the newspaper.

“He wanted to remain as independent as possible but he just couldn’t take care of himself anymore and lost the ability to speak last August. Talking was his favorite pastime and he loved being the center of attention.

“But he had a great life, we traveled so much and he did so many things that a lot of people never get the chance to do. We have a lot of really great memories.’

Nick began his career at regional broadcaster GWN in 1996 before moving to Channel Ten.
