THE EDITOR, Madam:

Northern Caribbean University (NCU) joins the media fraternity in paying tribute to veteran journalist Michael Sharpe, who passed away yesterday morning. We are saddened by the passing of an outstanding media icon who elevated Jamaican journalism.

Sharpe served as an adjunct instructor in the Department of Communication Studies from 2011 to 2018. He was a mentor to many, a role model for others, and a motivator to many aspiring media practitioners before, during and after his tenure here.

Through his versatile roles in media - television news presenter, radio talk-show host, parliamentary reporter, road traffic reporter, music programme presenter, among others - Sharpe was a guest in many Jamaican homes. His presence will be missed.

The administration of Northern Caribbean University extends condolences to Mr Sharpe’s family and colleagues at the RJRGLEANER Communications Group and pray that God will grant them comfort during their bereavement.
