Senator Malahoo Forte
Host: Former Judge and Senator Malahoo Forte will host Monday- Thursday, while Ms. Joan Williams will host on Fridays, or as the need arise. Ms. Williams has been the stand-by host for Mr. Perkins for many years.
Programme Profile: After an extensive search Power 106FM identified a new host for the midday programme. She is Senator Marlene Malahoo Forte, former Judge and former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade.
We have rebranded the show, with a new title called ‘JUSTICE’; which airs in the same time slot of Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., which commenced on April 2, 2012.
‘JUSTICE’ is interpreted in the widest sense of the concept. The name provides an appropriate banner for the continuation of the objectives established by the ‘Perkins Online’ programme formerly hosted by Wilmot ‘Motty’ Perkins.
‘JUSTICE,’ will have two important features: the first feature will be a ‘Justice Action Station,’ where we will pursue justice issues on behalf of our listeners.
The second will be the ‘People’s Court of Justice,’ which will deal with real issues for resolution.
