REMEMBERING İLHAN ÇEVİK ON THE 5TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEMISE

Ilhan Cevik: Life of a true journalist
(1926 - ...)

9 March 2014 Sunday 08:14
Ilhan Cevik was born on 24 December 1926 in the Central Anatolian province of Konya. He had his primary, secondary and high school education in Ankara and attended the Law School of Ankara. He graduated from Victoria College in London.



Starting his journalism career in daily Cumhuriyet in 1943 as a young reporter, he worked for a number of Turkish dailies, including Son Posta and Zafer and Ankara bureau chief of Yeni Sabah. He launched Turkey's first English-language daily, the Turkish Daily News, in 1961. He later handed the daily over to the Doğan Media Group and founded The New Anatolian. He believed in giving an opportunity to young generations and that is why many prominent journalists of today came from his newspapers.

He served as Press advisor at the State Theater and Turkish Airlines. He also served as a Deputy Press Attaché at the Turkish Embassy in London, being the first Professional journalist to be appointed to an Embassy by the decision of the cabinet.

He admired Ataturk, founder of modern Turkey and followed his principles, throughout his entire life. That is why he and his staff visited Ataturk's Mausoleum every anniversary of the Turkish Daily News and The New Anatolian.

His efforts in the Turkish media received high acclaim and in 1988 he was selected as the most successful journalist of the last 40 years by the Ankara Association of Journalists. Çevik also received the "Outstanding Service Award" from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Turkish Republic. He has been decorated with many medals including the Order of Brilliant Star from Chinese President Chiang Kai-shek, Order of Merit Sungry from Korean President Park Chung Hee and Officer des Palmeas Academiques award by French Education Minister.

He also dedicated his life to the Rotary because he believed in Rotary's motto "Service above self" more than anything in his life. With his services in Rotary he touched lives of
thousands among them were many poor students who went to school thanks to him.

With his elegant and chic look he is dearly missed by the diplomatic corps in Ankara.

He dearly loved his late wife, Nurten Çevik who is also missed by her dear friends and
Ankara Scene. That is why he wrote his last article as a journalist on the day she died.

Ilhan Cevik, father of two, grandfather of seven and great-grandfather of two will always be remembered as a humanitarian, a gentleman and a true journalist.
