Poor CVM racing coverage

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Racing fans have been suffering over the past year due to the grossly inadequate coverage of horse racing on CVM television.

Race day after race day there is a plethora of issues associated with the live coverage by CVM.

These range from late airing of the feed to no audio to a blank screen for minutes. In one instance, it was my call to the engineering department which alerted the person on duty that the time for the first race had changed and the station's broadcast was indeed almost an hour late.

Indeed, the icing on the cake was on Saturday, January 2, when up to 3 p.m. there was no indication as to when the programme scheduled for 12:25 would be aired.

Even more astonishing is the fact that more than 15 calls to the station went unanswered. Not even a crawl on the screen to advise viewers as to the situation.

Over to you Caymanas Track Limited. Surely you can demand greater professionalism or change stations. It's that simple.
