Harold Hoyte, one of the founders of the Nation Publishing Company, which publishes The Nation newspaper in Barbados, died this morning.

The Nation reported a short while ago that Hoyte, who had been ailing for some time, died about 11:30 a.m. local time.

He was 78 years old.

Hoyte retired in December 2006 and spent much of his time thereafter researching and writing several books.

According to the newspaper he co-founded, Nation House on Fontabelle was renamed the Harold Hoyte and Fred Gollop Media Complex earlier this month in honour of two of the founding members of the 45-year-old company.
