WORLD SERVICE


James Morgan


James MorganJames Morgan, who died on Wednesday this week in London from cancer at the age of 63, was a BBC World Service economics correspondent for more than 20 years.


He began working as an economics correspondent at Bush House in 1974 after working first at the Centre for Economic Policy Research. He retired as economics correspondent from BBC World Service in 1998.



At the World Service he was briefly Central Europe correspondent (1984/1985) and diplomatic correspondent (1992/1993) but for the vast part of his career as a broadcast journalist, James Morgan used his expertise to cover economic issues.


During a distinguished career at BBC World Service spanning two decades he reported from major economic conferences and financial trouble spots around the world.


Colleagues at BBC World Service remember him as a wise, incisive man with a wry sense of humour and as a valued, trusted colleague.
