Outspoken Vincentian journalist Jerry George has died.
George hosted the Tuesday edition of his early Early in the Morning with Jerry S. George programme dubbed “Thoughtful Tuesday”.
He invited journalist Beverly Sinclair to host this morning’s edition (August 2020) of the program and said he was going to “step out of frame”.
This was about 3:30 seconds into the program, after he did his usual introductions in a cheerful way.
Then at about 29 minutes and 30 seconds, the guest-host was finished telling her story and requested George to come back on the feed. George did not reappear.
The guest-host Sinclair continued until she eventually wrapped up the program at 45 minutes and 27 seconds.
After she left the live, the rest of the stream was left with dead air.
It later emerged that George had passed suddenly.
George was Public Relations Manager for Digicel in the Eastern Caribbean for a number of years.
He was a vocal social and political commentator.
In recent times, George has featured as a guest on several programmes on Observer Radio. (268 TODAY)
