Emmanuel Joseph

Veteran journalist Emmanuel Joseph will continue to lead The Barbados Association of Journalists and Media Workers (BARJAM).

After the Association’s Annual General Meeting earlier today, at the Argentina Embassy at Hastings, Christ Church, those in attendance cast their ballots and elected a new body to represent them for the remainder of this year and on to 2020.

Joseph defeated CBC's Ryan Broome to be re-elected as president.

However, Broome was elected as vice president by acclamation, while general secretary Rachelle Agard, treasurer Marlon Madden and public relations officer Deanzer Roberts were also elected.

The floor members selected to represent the body are Christina Smith, Trevor Thorpe and Anthony “Admiral” Nelson. (RA)
