PMA offers support to Caribbean broadcasters

4th July 2024
In light of Hurricane Beryl which has hit many different parts of the Caribbean, the Public Media Alliance offers its support to our members in the region. 

The Public Media Alliance offers its support to our Caribbean broadcaster members who are currently experiencing Hurricane Beryl. The category four storm has already impacted Jamaica, Grenada, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Venezuela, causing significant damage and loss of life. The Cayman Islands and Mexico are also expected to be impacted by the hurricane, which has now been downgraded to category three.  

During times of natural disasters, public service and public interest media play a critical role in providing urgent and accurate information to audiences. When lives are at risk, audiences turn to public media for this essential service. The information, disseminated through various broadcasting and digital channels, provides audiences with lifesaving news and guidance.  

We know our members are already fulfilling this lifeline service and will continue to do so, even after the storm has moved on.  

If you work for a public media company and need any support or extra assistance, please get in touch with PMA.
