“Marylyn was for many years the female face of Calendar and a very good friend,” said Alan Hardwick, Former Calendar presenter.
“She had a special relationship with our viewers that has stood the test of time; whenever anyone talks to me about Calendar – which, even after all this time, is often – they always mention Marylyn with great fondness.
“She was professional, she was kind, and I will miss her a great deal. My deepest condolences are with Alan and the family.”
Calendar News will be paying tribute to Marylyn on the 6pm news tonight.
