Stop recycling media hosts

There are so many talented media personalities in Jamaica, some of whom are graduates of prestigious universities but simply cannot get their break.

Our major TV stations and various media houses constantly recycle the same persons to fill in whenever someone is off. Talia Soares recently completed this season of 'Losing it' on TVJ, Terri-Karelle Reid, host of Digicel Rising Stars, was off last week and they used Ms Soares to fill in. I felt as if I was watching 'Losing it' or 'Intense' all over again.

I believe that in order for our media landscape to evolve, each show must be unique by unearthing new talent. We are tired of the perpetual recycling of TV hosts.
