The Barbados Association of Journalists and Media Workers (BARJAM), has learned with regret and sadness of the passing of Harold Hoyte.
His death has left a gaping hole in the media fraternity.
He was a colossus in the news information profession as a founder of the Nation Publishing Company Ltd., and a mentor and coach to an array of journalists in this country.
His intellectual acumen and fearlessness as a professional media Goliath will remain etched in my mind, and I have no doubt in the minds of us all.
The name Harold Hoyte is synonymous with excellence and integrity in the field of journalism.
On behalf of BARJAM, I express condolences to his family, those at the Nation Newspaper, his colleagues and close friends; and pray for their solace in this time of grief.
President – BARJAM
