Barbados: Tearful goodbyes at CBC
(Barbados Nation) The mood at the state-owned Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) on Friday was sombre as some staff members got their retrenchment letters.
Letters had also been handed out on Thursday, as the lone television station was impacted by Government’s ongoing retrenchment programme.
THE NATION was reliably informed that some staffers were openly crying and hugging each other while saying goodbyes to colleagues.
Some well-known names were among those leaving, including head of news and current affairs Michelle Arthur, senior journalist Peter Thorne and popular radio announcers Dave Smooth, DJ Indian and DJ Hurricane.
