Radio broadcaster Grant Goldman has passed away at 69 years of age.

He had an incredible innings in radio and broadcasting in general, getting his start at just 14.
Over the years he worked at 2TM, 2DAYFM, 6PR, 2UE, 2GB, 2WS, 3UZ and had two stints at 2SM, and more recently on Breakfast across the Super Radio Network.
Goldman was known as the voice of Brookvale Oval, having been the ground announcer for the Manly Sea Eagles for most seasons since 1983. He stepped down in 2016.
He was also the very first host of TV show Countdown, worked for Channel 7, Sky, and the Val Morgan cinema group. He spent time as an announcer during the Sydney Olympics, as well as at other NSW grounds including the SFS, Stadium Australia.
Tributes have begun rolling in across social media networks including Twitter.
