Jody Jacobs, eNCA's operations manager, paid tribute to Wilson following his passing.

"Michael, known to many as Mike, joined eNCA in August 2006 and has dedicated his craft to our business with passion and diligence in the last 14 years.

"Michael will be remembered for his dry sense of humour and personable nature. His presence in the newsroom will be missed. Our thoughts are with his fiancee, Reinette, family, and friends during this difficult time," Jacobs said.

The company assured that it would continue to follow government regulations and to safeguard staff by taking the necessary precautions, including disinfecting common use areas and equipment in the Johannesburg office.

"We have also instituted a tracing and tracking process. All employees who had contact with Michael have been advised to stay at home pending testing. They will be tested and subsequently go into self-isolation," the channel said.

It added that it would be making plans to honour their colleague's memory.
