Long-time journalist Janice Budd died yesterday afternoon.

She was diagnosed with cancer several months ago.

Budd worked for several years at the Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation, CVM TV, RJR, and the Jamaica Observer as a reporter, presenter, and editor. She also worked in the communications unit at the National Commercial Bank, and later, the Shipping Association of Jamaica.

RJRGLEANER Communications Group Chief Executive Officer Gary Allen remembers Budd as a vibrant journalist.

It's a memory shared by other colleagues, who spoke on RJR's 'Beyond the Headlines' yesterday evening.

"She was the best documentary writer," Deborah Hickling recalled. "You really felt the stories she wrote."
