David Frost, Known For Nixon Interview, Dies

Posted: Updated:

LONDON (AP) - Veteran British journalist David Frost has died.
    
Frost won worldwide fame for his TV interviews with former President Richard Nixon in 1977. Recorded after the Watergate scandal and the president's resignation, they achieved the largest audience for a TV news interview in history.
    
Frost's family tells the BBC he died of a suspected heart attack last night aboard the Queen Elizabeth cruise ship, where he was due to give a speech. David Frost was 74.
    
Known for incisive interviews of leading public figures, Frost spent more than 50 years as a television star.
    
Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted: "My heart goes out to David Frost's family. He could be - and certainly was with me - both a friend and a fearsome interviewer."
