Keith Smith, the Editor-at-Large, at the Trinidad Express newspaper died today following a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 65.
Relatives said the veteran journalist, whose commentaries on social and political issues were a fixture in the newspaper, died at his home in Laventille, along the east-west corridor.
Last November when he was visited by Minister of Arts and Multiculturalism, Winston “Gypsy” Peters at his home, Smith told reporters “when you writing this story just make sure that you don’t make it morbid”.
In 2009, Smith, who had been with the Express newspaper for 45 years, was awarded the Humming Bird Medal Silver, the island’s third national award, for his contribution to journalism. (CMC)
