Richard Whiteley adorned our screens as the host of Countdown for 27 years. 

As a cheerful face in a very cheerful tie he will always be synonymous with Channel 4. Countdown was the launch programme for Channel 4 at 4:45 pm on 2 November 1982, and Whiteley was the first person to be seen on the channel.

Despite his intelligence, Whiteley embodied the self-deprecating humour common to region. 

He sadly passed away at Leeds General Infirmary in 2005. 

As Leeds has been chosen as the site of Channel 4's new HQ there can be no better memorial than to name the new HQ after Richard.
