Do things the Go-Jamaica Way


Programme Name:

Programme Hosts: Cliff Hughes, Carol Narcisse, Carol Vassall

Programme Description: Nationwide is a current affairs magazine programme broadcast on Mondays to Fridays from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. The programme seeks to be on the cutting edge of news reporting backed by in-depth comment and incisive analysis. Its guiding creed is embodied in the words, 'go where the truth leads'.

Nationwide's flagship features are its major newscasts at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Cover Story, The Nation's Business and Public Opinion. These constitute a solid mix of hard news, current affairs and sports, and lifestyle issues.

In the four years since its birth, Nationwide has carved out a reputation for breaking major stories, fearless news analysis and commentary, penetrative interviews and up-to-the-minute coverage of news events.

It is also now viewed as required listening for policy makers, the thinking Jamaican who has an interest in public affairs and leaders of the socio-economic and cultural spheres of national life.

About the Hosts:
Carol Vassall, with over 23 years of experience as a civil lawyer, contributes to the depth of analysis for which Nationwide is reputed, when she co-hosts the programme on Thursdays and Fridays with Hughes. She is fairly new to the field of talk radio, having served as club member of Hot 102's Breakfast Club for over a year, before joining the Nationwide team in March 2002.

She came to media attention when she spoke out against the injustices in the coffee industry on talk shows, as an advocate for the Jamaica Coffee Growers' Association. Vassall is still passionately solution-oriented , and she believes that through her role as co-host of Nationwide she can contribute to solutions to many of the country's problems.

Next week we will feature Carol Narcisse

Your Feedback: Advise vs. Advice
In last week's issue the word "advise" was incorrectly used in the phrase " need legal advise?". The correct word should have been "advice". "Advise" is the verb meaning to to give counsel(advice). Therefore the phrase should have been "need legal advice?".

Thank you for your feedback and for highlighting the error. We look forward to your suggestions, comments and feedback.
