TRINIDAD AND Tobago's television station, Gayelle, made a major breakthrough in the media world when they signed an agreement with OBE TV in the United Kingdom.
The historic occasion took place at Trinidad and Tobago's High Commission in London on March 2. Gayelle's CEO, Errol Fabien and OBE TV's CEO, Bernard Ampaw were the two men who put pen to paper to seal the deal.
The European African community and Caribbean community will see the representation of both diasporas, in this bold, new forum on SKY Cable TV, channel 207. This venture also serves to represent a business model that at its core, will act as a catalyst to forge community unity in a modern and multiethnic society.
Both networks are leaders in their own respective communities and have worked endlessly to promote and represent the voice of their people on a world stage, the OBE Channel is an established voice of the African community in the UK, based in Harrow Middlesex, and on March 18, The Gayelle Channel will open its European studios and headquarters in the UK in Northamptonshire.
Fabien said: “I fell in love with the people in this county while working on one of our projects in January 2010 and we decided that this was the place to set up our state of the art studio.”
OBE TV and Gayelle each pride themselves on being youth driven and family orientated. Together, they intend to have a strong programme schedule that reflects this shared focus. The network will command the attention of 28 million households in the European region and will devote its resources to brining the best of both communities to audiences here in Europe.
Gail Guy, Acting High Commissioner for Trinidad and Tobago in London, presided over the ceremony which was witnessed by the Mayor of Brent, Councillor Jim O'Sullivan, Mayor of Haringey, Councillor Bernice Vernier and the Ghana High Commission's Minister of Information, Zuwera Ibrahimah. Members of staff at the Trinidad and Tobago High Commission who were in attendance included First Secretary, Roanna Gopaul, Public Affairs Attach?, Ashton Ford and Trade Attach?, Dionne Ligoure, among others.
