    The Gold Logie-winning presenter’s death was announced on breakfast television, with Karl Stefanovic describing Henderson as “a much-loved member”. “An absolute legend. A gentleman and a total professional who provided guidance and inspiration for so many colleagues and generations who followed,” he said. “We loved him.”
