The Northern Service is celebrating 32 years of television broadcasting from Grand Bahama by remembering the legacy of someone who played an integral role in bringing TV broadcasting to that island.
The late Colin Trotman, production manager at the time, is being remembered for for his dedicated service. Paying tribute is Deputy General Manager of Programming, Darren Meadows who said, “he would probably be the single most important person in that phase of the project because based on his training we were able to come online within six weeks of starting the program.”
Also remembering Mr. Trotman is Denzal Swain, a pioneer of the Norther Service. “He was really like the hands and foot behind what was going on when the pioneer group came and joined, he took each person and then everybody developed their skills in different areas.”
Trotman was present in 2019 when the Northern Service transitioned to high definition. He died on August 8th of the same year at the age of 57.
