Alistair McMurranA tribute will be held for former Otago Daily Times sports reporter Alistair McMurran on Sunday at the Edgar Centre. A private funeral was held earlier this week and the tribute on Sunday will be a chance for members of the public to acknowledge the contribution McMurran made to sport in Otago and other achievements. The tribute, which is open to the public, will be in the More FM Arena and will start at 3pm. A former school teacher, McMurran started working at the Otago Daily Times in 1975 and retired from fulltime reporting in 2014. McMurran, who was not married, was also a keen traveller who visited about 150 countries, including North Korea.
