Television hosts and journalists are sending their condolences to Diane Sawyer after the death of her husband, legendary director Mike Nichols. Nichols died Wednesday night at 83 from a heart attack. The director was one of the most honored people in show business, among the handful to have won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy and a Tony Award. He was behind the camera for more than a few classic films, including “The Graduate,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” and “The Birdcage.”

Nichols married Sawyer in 1988. The pair were together for over 25 years before the filmmaker’s death. In the wake of Sawyer’s loss, many in the television news and talk show community have extended their sympathy to the former ABC “World News” anchor.

Those who have reached out to Sawyer on Twitter include “Yahoo Global News” anchor Katie Couric, “Good Morning America” anchor George Stephanopoulos, “Rachael Ray” host Rachael Ray, “Today” weather anchor Al Roker, former “Weekend Today” anchor Campbell Brown, and Fox News’ Howard Kurtz. Their tweets can be seen below:

Sawyer has not yet released a statement about her husband’s death. The couple had no children together.
