Jerry Romain, Pioneer Radio Broadcaster

Jerome “Jerry” D.M. Romain was born on January 1st 1939 on Green Street     in St. George’s, Grenada. He attended Primary and Secondary Schools as well     as the Teacher Training Institution.He was awarded a Commonwealth Scholarship by the British Council in     London where he specialized in     Broadcasting.  His performance at Training College resulted in an assignment     with the British     Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) where he served as Producer in the Caribbean     Service from 1973 until his recall to Grenada.

Locally, he joined the staff of the then Windward Islands Broadcasting     Service (WIBS) and rose from     Announcer to Program Director, in which role he served in St. Lucia for four     months and in St. Vincent & the Grenadines for a period of two years.
When WIBS folded up, the Windward Governments established their own radio     stations where he was     appointed Manager of Radio Grenada, a position he held until the     Revolutionary Government took control and detained him on grounds that he     was a counter revolutionary.  When the interim Government took office,     Romain was re-instated to his public service position and was appointed as     Director of Government Information Service.

On retirement he served with Voice of Grenada Radio as Manager and later     with Meaningful Television.  Romain is now freelancing and shares his time     with broadcasting an agricultural development.

We at Spiceislander.com will like to wish Mr. Romain a happy and healthy retirement.
