Oliver F. Clarke, OJ, was elected chairman of Radio Jamaica Limited, which trades as the RJRGLEANER Com-munications Group, on Monday, December 11, 2017.

He fills the slot created by the passing of J.A. Lester Spaulding, who had been ill. Spaulding had given notice to shareholders of the media company of his intention to give up chairmanship by this year-end at their annual general meeting on September 18 but passed away before that.

Dr Lawrence Nicholson was also elected deputy chairman of Radio Jamaica Limited, a position that Clarke previously held. Nicholson has served on the board since 2013 and is also chairman of subsidiaries Television Jamaica Limited, JNN Limited, and RETV Limited.

Clarke remains chairman of The Gleaner Company (Media) Limited, another subsidiary of the group.
