In A Lengthy She Wrote:-
Dom Busby, from the week I started at the BBC you went out of your way to look out for me. You perked us up popping by for chats during your schedule. Your work hours and commute I wouldn’t wish on anyone, but you did it because you loved your job. Although we rarely talked about work, I remember you as the friend that walked me home after late shifts so I didn’t walk in the dark alone.
You told the best stories, gave the hugs (When we were allowed to). You’d walk across the newsroom arms wide open and I always saw you coming out of the corner of my eye with that infectious smile.
That’s just s a speck of how you will be remembered. not just a colleague but as a friend, someone I could go to with anything. I’m glad you came to me too. I’m grateful for the 6 years that we confided in each other and laughed together.
You have the most wonderful family and you leave a great legacy.
I am so, so gutted to hear the terrible news of the passing of @Dom_bbc.
Dominic Busby was one of the BBC Radio Solent voices that kept this local radio obsessed kid (don’t ask) company and encouraged him into radio.
I spoke to him on phone ins countless times as a teenager.

So sad to hear this morning that Dominic Busby has passed away. This is how I remember him in 1992 when I did work experience at Minster FM. We were in touch on and off over the years since, and he was kind to/had time for everyone he met. Thinking of his family. Rest in peace pic.twitter.com/dwbhyTSQmw
