3AW's legendary Bruce Mansfield has died after a long battle with prostate cancer, aged 71.

The station reports that Bruce died peacefully at his home surrounded by family on Sunday morning.

In a statement on its website the station said: Our thoughts and prayers are with Bruce's family, particularly his wife, Jill, their three children and his beloved grandchildren.
