NHK Chairman Ryoichi Ueda has apologized to the parents of a reporter who died from overwork at the network in 2013, the public broadcaster has said.

On Wednesday, NHK made public for the first time that the death of 31-year-old Miwa Sado was determined by labor standards inspectors in 2014 as having been caused by overwork. Her family had been calling for NHK to make the cause of their daughter’s death public.
