Radio Vision 2000, Marie Lucie Bonhomme, Valery Numa, Daly Valet

The Port-au-Prince broadcast radio station, Radio Vision 2000, is undergoing a significant change with the departure of one iconic host and the return of another. After over a decade as an anchorman for the radio station, Valéry Numa has decided to leave his home on the 99.3 FM frequency and take up residence on his own 88.9 station, FM Platinum.

Among his other endeavors are the newsman's hotel, Kickback, and other business holdings in the South Haiti locale, Camp Perrin, from where his radio station will be broadcast. The goal is for FM Platinum to reach 18 southern towns by way of relay through other radio programs, a 'first' as announced by Valery. His last broadcast on the program he is known for, 'Guest of the Day', will be broadcast on Friday, September 2nd, after which the prodigal journalist, Marie-Lucie Bonhomme will return to host the popular show.

Radio Signal FM and Mario Viau

After the earthquake struck on January 12, 2010 the country's telecommunications infrastructure, including television, phones and the radio all suffered severely.

In Quebec, students have been protesting all during 2012 in response to large tuition hikes planned for the next five years. They are demanding tuitions be frozen and the Quebec government seek out other funding means. Students are using a number of tactics to force the government to meet their demands. Among them are whole-scale demonstrations in the streets, occupation of university buildings, and alliances with well-known radical groups.
