Ken McHale
Sep 12th, 2022, 3:46pm
It is with sadness to report my husband Ken McHale lost his 18-month battle with bowel cancer on 27th July 2022.  

Ken joined the BBC in 1973 at the age of 20 as a Telex Operator for the newsroom and over the next 33 years worked in local radio, sport, and as a Talent Rights Executive in London where he spent the majority of his career negotiating artists contracts and fees.  

He took voluntary redundancy in 2006 and enjoyed his semi-retirement by playing golf, snooker and working as a film and television extra making new friends as well as keeping in contact with his BBC colleagues.

He was determined to fight this illness, had a positive attitude, and never gave up....but it wasn’t to be, and he died peacefully in hospital.  The funeral took place on 31st August.

Thank you for all the letters, cards and flowers I have received.

Melanie (Rowlands) McHale
