Bailey had a long career in the media, working for numerous television organisations and radio stations including both Channel Seven and the ABC.

He joined the ABC as a cadet journalist in 1968, before leaving to work at Channel Seven for 13 years until his return to the national broadcaster.

After retiring from the ABC in 2007 he returned to presenting the weather again during a brief stint on Channel Nine until he left in 2009.

He was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in 2020 for his extensive service to the community, a recognition for the genuine consideration he had for those around him.

Wests Tigers Chair Lee Hagipantelis and CEO Justin Pascoe paid tribute to Bailey's service to the club and community.

"On behalf of all at Wests Tigers, we are extremely saddened by the loss of Mike and thankful for all that he has done for our club," Mr Hagipantelis said.

Hollywood's most controversial movie castings

  Hollywood's most controversial movie castings Hollywood has come a long way, but it still has a long road ahead towards equality and inclusiveness. Casting choices are a particular sore spot, as white actors are cast as people of color, able-bodied actors are cast as disabled characters, and cisgender actors are cast in transgender roles⁠—putting marginalized actors out of work. Even films aiming to show an underrepresented community stumble with issues like colorism—prejudice or discrimination against darker skin tones within the same racial group. Such is the case with Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical film adaptation of his Broadway hit 'In the Heights,' which received criticism after failing to adequately represent Afro-Latinos in a story centered on New York’s Latino communities. The director, who also starred in the film, posted a statement on social media on June 14 acknowledging that casting for his project, set in the diverse neighborhood of Washington Heights, had fallen short. "I can hear the hurt and frustration over colorism, of feeling unseen in the feedback," Miranda wrote. "I hear that without sufficient dark-skinned Afro-Latino representation, the work feels extractive of the community we wanted so much to represent with pride and joy. In trying to paint a mosaic of this community, we fell short,” he continued, before apologizing, thanking people for their criticism, and promising to do better.

"I consider him a true friend and mentor and my deepest sympathies and thoughts are with Mike's family — his wife Helena and son Michael — during this time."

Mr Pascoe said: "Mike's commitment to Wests Tigers was of the highest level and his contribution to this club will not be forgotten."

"He was a true gentleman and always willing to assist Wests Tigers wherever he could, giving the time for others before himself."

Wests Ashfield CEO Simon Cook said Bailey would be deeply missed.

"The news of Mike's passing is devastating," Mr Cook said.

"Mike was a mentor, a friend and a beautiful human being. The staff and I will miss his smiling face, his wisdom, loyalty, and his unwavering support."

Former TV colleagues also led the tributes, with ABC News presenter Juanita Phillips remembering her former colleague on Twitter.

"So terribly sad to hear of the death of the ABC's legendary weatherman Mike Bailey. He was a true gentleman - good values, proud of his craft and a delight to work with," she wrote.

ABC TV host Joe O'Brien joined the Twitter tributes, writing "Mike Bailey was a down to earth, warm, funny guy. You can still tell by that cheeky glint in his eye. Sad to hear he has passed away."

While ABC Breakfast host Michael Rowland wrote: "Some really sad news. Former ABC weather presenter Mike Bailey has died in hospital after falling ill recently. He was superb at his craft and was a genuinely nice man. My sympathies to his family and friends."
