BELOVED BBC BROADCASTER DAVID JACOBS DEAD AT 87
Monday, September 02, 2013 - Veteran British broadcaster David Jacobs has died, aged 87.
The TV and radio presenter, whose career began 70 years ago, passed away at his home just over a month after poor health prompted him to step down from his Bbc Radio Two show.
Jacobs became a staple at the BBC after hosting shows like Housewives' Choice, Juke Box Jury and Any Questions.
Announcing his decision to retire in July , Jacobs told listeners, "Over the past two years, Radio 2 has given me time to be treated for liver cancer and Parkinson's Disease."
He began his broadcasting career in the Royal Navy in 1944, and joined the BBC a year later.
Jacobs was one of the first hosts of chart show Top of the Pops and he also presented the telecast of the annual Eurovision Song Contest.
