Publisher?of THE NATION and Chief Executive Officer of the Nation Corporation, Vivian-Anne Gittens, has attributed the newspaper’s success to “our God” and the contributions of staffers – from the early days to today – as well as corporate partners, advertisers and the public.
Gittens headed a number of officials and well-wishers in celebrating THE NATION newspaper’s 40th anniversary during a church service at St Mary’s Anglican Church in Bridgetown yesterday.
Guests included chairman of THE NATION’s parent company One Caribbean Media, Sir Fred Gollop and his wife Lady Gollop, chairman of Nation Publishing Harold Hoyte and his wife Noreen, and former executive director of Caribbean Communication Network Limited, Ken Gordon, and wife Marguerite.
Gittens, who also recognized the members of her executive team and stalwarts of THE NATION, said Gordon helped in the production of early publications of THE NATION’s daily papers. She also thanked the advertisers, while also inviting feedback from the public.
“Our advertisers have been extremely loyal to us and we are indebted to them. Whatever products or initiatives we have brought to the marketplace, they have endorsed,” she said.
Staffers Barton Carrington and Sophia Sue rendered a musical selection entitled Thank You Lord.
The company also made a donation to St Mary’s Church. (JS)
