The Broadcasting Corporation of The Bahamas is celebrating 45 years of television broadcasting. As part of the celebrations the executive and staff of the Corporation worshipped at the St. Barnabas Anglican Church.
Executive Chairman, Picewell Forbes brought remarks at the service saying, “over the past 45 years, since then, ZNS has been able to bring some memorable moments to the homes of our people all over this archipelago. From the first externally covered event in 1979, the funeral of Sir Milo Butler, our first Bahamian Governor General, to the pomp and pageantry of royal visits, to the excitement of political conventions and also elections. The tragedy of the Straw Market and coverage of devastating hurricanes such as Dorian and Andrew. ZNS has been there for it all.”
The Hon. Myles Laroda, Minister of State with responsibility for ZNS also attended the service. He told congregants, “I say this all the time hat ZNS has been here long before the others. We are here while they’re here, we’ll be here after they are gone. We may not have all of the new cutting edge equipment, for now, but we know starting around 6:30 and then again at 7 o’clock where most Bahamians get there news from. And we make no apologies for being the leader.”
