Mike Bongiorno dies

Well known Italian television presenter and quiz master Mike Bongiorno has died aged 85, timesofmalta.com informs. Born in New York to an Italian mother and an Italian-American father, Bongiorno moved to Italy when still a child and became an institution in the Italian broadcasting scene. He was one of the first high profile presenters to defect from Rai to privately-owned Canale 5 and continued to present programmes well into old age. Bongiorno died suddenly of a heart attack in Monte Carlo.
