It's crunch time for The Anchor

Published:Saturday | May 1, 2010 | 12:00 AM

Twenty contestants made the cut on the last episode of 'The Anchor' but they cannot become too comfortable as they must now face the judges. An august bunch of judges in the form of Michael Anthony Cuffe, Ian Andrews and Karen Harriott will combine to provide an evaluation of each contestant.

Harriott might be best known as an actress of stage, television and film but few know that she is a seasoned adjudicator in the National Speech Competitions staged by the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission. In recent times, she has been busy at the University of the West Indies pursuing a doctoral degree in the Department of Cultural Studies.

If you've been to the stadium to watch the Reggae Boyz, chances are you would have heard the dulcet tones of Ian Andrews caressing the national anthem. Only a few years ago, he was the voice of sports on CVM TV before he became the executive director of the Institute of Sports.

Michael Anthony Cuffe honed his skills in Canada before coming back home to show off one of the coolest voices in the business. Whether on radio, television or being a compère at big music shows, Michael Anthony Cuffe has done it all.

This combination of judges will provide critical on-camera analysis of all contestants leading up to the finals of The 'Anchor'.

The show is broadcast on CVM TV on Mondays at 9 p.m. with an encore on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.
