On behalf of the administrative and political arms of the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC), I am deeply saddened at the passing of veteran broadcaster Dorraine Samuels, a dedicated soul whose contribution has undoubtedly added value to the development of the media and communication landscape in Jamaica and the region.

My heartfelt condolences are extended to her relatives, former colleagues and friends who are no doubt devastated by the loss of a “sweet soul” who was loved and revered by Jamaicans at home and abroad. One cannot but agree that Dorraine Samuels was a stalwart of the media and communication profession who served with unstinting distinction in her field, I mourn her loss, Jamaica is poorer for her passing.
