Staff at the Fijian Broadcasting Corporation are mourning the passing of former employee Luisa Utoniika.
Utoniika was one of the longest-serving staff in Fiji’s broadcasting industry.
Utoniika started working at FBC in 1978 as a scheduling clerk and later joined Radio Fiji One as a radio presenter in early 2000.
She later retired in 2017.
Radio Fiji One Program Director Nai Kamanalagi says Utoniika will be remembered as a dedicated radio presenter and was outspoken.
Kamanalagi says Utoniika known as a motherly figure to the staff at FBC and this was shown in her engagement with staff as well as radio listeners.
“As a radio presenter, we all know her personality does show where she goes out to and whom she talks to. Aunty Lu she’s a hard-working lady, she’ll be missed for her motherly advice mostly to FBC and may her soul rest in peace.”
Utoniika succumbs to a short illness on Sunday and will be laid to rest tomorrow.
