THE Fiji Media Industry is mourning the loss of one of its own, after the sad passing of veteran journalist Laisa Taga.

Taga, who had just turned 56 on January 16, died at 10:15am on Friday at her residence in Cunningham.

Her brother Mosese Taga told this newspaper that his sister was diagnosed with cancer about six months ago but her cancer status never stopped her from continuing with what she loved doing which was her work.

Taga had more than 30 years of experience in the media industry with her latest appointment being the assistant editor of Islands Business International, a media organisation that focuses on news around the Pacific.

"The funeral will be held this week however the date will be confirmed tomorrow (today)," Mr Taga said.

To respect her wishes there would be no reguregu, said Mr Taga.

She is survived by her son Aisake Niumataiwalu Tarogi and grandson Savenaca.
