Celebrating Jack Robertson, a Reporter and a Gentleman

Jack Robertson, a pioneering journalists who covered the evolution of the high-tech manufacturing industry for decades, has died. I could tell stories of Jack's exploits, but my colleague, Mark LaPedus, semiconductor editor at EE Times, has done a fine job chronicling the ace journalist's exploits, complete with comments from numerous ex-colleagues.

Mark's report is available here.

    Bolaji, thanks for posting this.    I didn’t know the man, but knew his work.  The report by Mark LaPedus is a touching tribute to Robertson’s work and life.  He will be missed.

    I had the privilege of working with Jack at EBN for nearly 7 years. Like Lew Young, he always had time to nudge a rookie reporter in the right direction. His stories on being in foreign news bureaus duing the “old days” were classic. We were all better for having worked with Jack.
