Producer, Presenter and News Reporter at CC-6 Television, Shere-Ann Noel was nominated unopposed to the top position with the Media Workers Association of Grenada (MWAG) last week Saturday during a meeting that took place at the Presentation Brothers College.
Top of the agenda was the election of officers to serve for a two-year period.
Noel replaces Rawle Titus who has held the position for two terms.
Under MWAG’s Constitution Titus who is now the Director of the Government Information Services (GIS) was not eligible to seek re-election.
The first Vice-President is Digicel’s Marketing Manager, Kirk Seetahal.
That position was left vacant since the passing of radio personality Anthony “Jericho” Greenidge almost two years ago.
The position of Second Vice-President has been retained by Mickey Hutchinson of WEE-FM Radio.
The Secretary is Blossom Alexis-Welsh, News Reporter at CC-6. She will be assisted by Bernadette Baptiste who is employed with GIS.
Taking charge of MWAG’s finances is camera operator at CC-6, Yuri Marryshow.
In an exclusive interview with THE NEW TODAY Newspaper, Noel said her first priority is to unite the media fraternity on the island.
She described her biggest challenge as one of getting media persons working in all arms of the media to come together as one so as to chart the way forward.
According to Noel, the love for the media motivated her to come forward at this time to serve at the top position with MWAG.
She spoke of having been urged by media colleagues who saw the leadership qualities she posses to step forward to serve at the helm.
The female president previously served MWAG as its Treasurer.
She said that now being at the helm of the association means a lot for women in the media and for those who are contemplating making it a career.
Females currently outnumber the males in the local media.
Noel said she is now looking forward to acquaint herself with the Media Policy, and find out at what stage it is at and how MWAG can move forward with it.
