Statement of Attorney General Martha Coakley on the Death of John Henning

BOSTON - Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley issued the following statement regarding the death of John Henning:

"I wish to pass along my sincere condolences to the family and friends of John Henning. A veteran news journalist, John was a man of integrity and the consummate professional. His breadth of skill and experience made him the voice of authority for Massachusetts politics. For John, his reporting was always about the news and the story, and never about himself. John's passing is a great loss for his family and friends, and also for the Boston news community and the citizens of the Commonwealth. He will be missed greatly."
