Doug Hoyte spent his last day with the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation today.

The general manager is another casualty of the change in government following the May 24 General Elections.

Earlier today he did a walkabout at the island’s lone television station where he bade farewell to colleagues whom he worked with since April 2016 when he was appointed under the then ruling Democratic Labour Party.

“Effective immediately the General Manager and the Board of the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation have agreed to a mutual and amicable separation. The Board takes this opportunity to thank Mr Hoyte for his service and wish him well in his future endeavours,” a memo addressed to the staff stated.

In the interim, Deputy General Manager, Rodwell London, will act in the position. London had acted in the position prior to Hoyte’s appointment.

Hoyte an experienced television news anchor was a talk show host and an Emmy Award-winning journalist. At one point he was also a news anchor on CBC TV and much later lead host of Mornin’ Barbados. (AC)
