Australian television legend David John Leckie died this week at aged 70, with his family revealing the former Seven West Media (SWM) passed away after suffering a long illness. Leckie is widely credited with turning around Seven’s fortunes in the 2000s. Before joining Seven, Leckie led rival network Nine from 1990 to 2001. So what will his legacy be for television, and the media industry more widely?
