Dorraine – a consummate professional
THE EDITOR, Sir:
I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family of the late Dorraine Samuels. She was one of the country’s most talented broadcasters and presenters spanning several decades. She earned the admiration of a wide cross section of Jamaicans and consistently did her job with distinction, professionalism and dignity. She captured the minds of many radio and television listeners and was always pleasant, warm in thought and conduct and did her job with ease, comfort and respect, which made her quite popular in many homes throughout the country.
Ms Samuels was highly respected, admired and liked and never showed any political bias. She was unambiguously the queen of morning radio. She complemented Alan Magnus exceedingly well and was so fluent while co-hosting the programme and so vastly well informed on many topical affairs, social and political general issues and on issues affecting the general population of Jamaica.
She gave a voice for the voiceless and will be greatly missed.
She did the journalism profession well and will be always missed.
