Reflecting on the news today that Euryn Ogwen Williams has died, MG ALBA Chair Allan MacDonald said:

‘Euryn has been described today as a giant of Welsh broadcasting, and that is in no doubt. His legacy, eminently visible in S4C, reflects his commitment to the Welsh language and securing its place in the broadcasting and digital world.

His active approach to minority language provision went beyond Welsh, and here at MG ALBA we remember his supportive role in the early days of Comataidh Telebhisean Gàidhlig, which continued to the present day. We remember him with sincere gratitude for his work, and his kindness.

Our thoughts are with his family, his colleagues and friends at this very sad time.’
