Kingston 26 March 2019 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has expressed sadness at the passing of the radio and television broadcaster, Dorraine Samuels who passed away this afternoon (Tuesday) after an illness.

In her tribute, Minister Grange described Dorraine Samuels as “an exemplar for women in public life.”

Minister Grange said:

“Dorraine’s work on radio and television has been outstanding and her contribution to Jamaican media has been exceptional.  I am very sad to hear of her passing.  This feels like the loss a member of the family.  I believe that is how many Jamaicans saw Dorraine — she was like family and we admired, appreciated and loved her.  We share this great loss with Dorraine’s family and colleagues and I ask that we keep them in our thoughts and prayers.”


Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

Olivia Grange
