Chairman Smith quits CBC

LESS THAN A YEAR after Melba Smith took over the chairmanship of the beleaguered Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), she has called it quits.

Smith, a former general manager and director of news at CBC, was appointed chairman on June 27, 2018, on a three-year contract.

Her resignation follows that of board members Gillian Leach and Mark Shorey.

When contacted yesterday, Smith confirmed she had relinquished the office.

“All that I am saying is yes, I have resigned, but there is nothing to discuss,” she told the DAILY NATION.
