Dorraine Samuels gave Jamaica and the broadcasting world the equivalent of what Dr. The Hon Usain Bolt gave to Athletics through performances in Track and Field. The golden pinnacles of both respective career performances stand high above and beyond the reach of many other individual aspirants.
Dorraine, through a majestic winsome humane personality, an adorable communications acumen, a wonderful devotion to personalised human relationships and an unparlled natural humility, rose to the throne of broadcasting in characteristic splendour.
I clearly remember dutifully introducing Dorraine to a career in Broadcasting, and listened and watched her ascent to majestic heights over the years.
Her’s was a service of long lasting pleasant and memorable proportions. She can hardly be replaced.
