Shake Up at GBN

Posted by at 2 April, at 12 : 57 PM Print

The Grenada Broadcasting Network (GBN) has dismissed program director of Klassic Radio Sherma Wells and Clarence Baker of GBN TV in a shake up of the station.

A source told Spiceislander.com that GBN will be an affiliate of the new OCM network from Barbados. This new network has been hurriedly set up to replace the BBC Caribbean service.

I cannot see the big rush to start up a network to replace the BBC Caribbean service.  Remember the BBC Caribbean service was just a few minutes of news daily. 

I am blaming the NNP and Keith Mitchell for selling our national radio station to foreign interest.  Grenada has been out of a radio station that provides good local programming for too long.

Now GBN will be a relay station for the New OCM network.  Grenadians will wake up to listen to programs from Barbados.

What a disgrace to all the great pioneers of broadcasting in Grenada.  Grenada has always lead the way in broadcasting until the NNP regime sold the station for a mere 1 million EC dollars. (2 radio and 1 TV stations)

I am once again calling on the government of Grenada to re-establish a truly national radio station.  I suggest that they combine the GIS with a new national station.  The GIS programs will be better served if it is carried on a station with regular local programs.  This was very successful until the NNP started messing with the station.

    I am trying to listen to GBN Klassic Radio on the net but it seems that they are off the air. Can anyone help?

    I agree with you 100%. The NDC should take back GBN or establish their own local station.
