One of Ballarat's longest tenured radio announcers is being remembered as a "thorough gentleman'' after his death.
Geoff Nott, who worked as an announcer and newsreader at 3BA for more than 40 years, died at the age of 89.
His former manager of many years at 3BA Peter Caligari spoke fondly about Mr Nott, praising him for his professionalism and overall good nature.
"He was a thorough gentleman," Mr Cailigari said.
"He was just one of the nicest, most genuine, friendly people that you could ever find.
"He was admired and respected by all of his fellow employees, he engaged with them very well and he was just a truly outstanding person.

"He made a wonderful contribution to 3BA as an on-air presenter for many years. He was a wonderful employee and everyone certainly respected Geoff.
"I certainly couldn't speak any more highly of Geoff Nott."
These sentiments were echoed by former 3BA breakfast announcer Glenn Driscoll, who posted his tribute to Mr Nott on social media.
"Geoff will leave with me and no doubt every other person who was fortunate enough to have known him with such wonderful memories, all positive," Mr Driscoll wrote.
"Geoff was a thorough gentleman, a very genuine person who always had time for others and would help any young announcers with the intricacies of learning about the world of broadcasting."
Mr Nott is survived by his three daughters Debbie, Cathy and Amanda.
