Acclaimed broadcaster Dorraine Samuels is dead

RJR's Earl Moxam takes a look back at the career of Dorraine Samuels
 
RJR broadcaster Dorraine Samuels has died at the age of 59. 
 
Samuels, who had been a broadcaster for almost 40 years, had been battling cancer. 
 
She entered broadcasting in 1981 after her talent as a speaker was spotted during a visit to Radio Jamaica while she was a finalist in the Miss Jamaica World pageant.
 
Soon, she began hosting her own shows, one of which was Jamaica Today, in a mid-morning time slot. 
 
In 2004, she broadened her new sreading portfolio to television, becoming a co-anchor on TVJ's Prime Time News. 
 
Throughout her career, she was a key member of the RJR outside broadcast team on outreach events across the island and for important state occasions. 
 
For many listeners, however, the enduring memory of Dorraine Samuels will be that of her partnership and usual banter with Alan Magnus, the 'King of Morning Radio', for four decades.  
 
The RJRGLEANER Communications Group is deeply saddened by her passing.
