Radios are a major part of Haitian Culture. Almost everyone, children, youth, women and men in Haiti listen to radio. Statistics show that over 97 percent of the country's population own a radio set and at least three hundred radio broadcasting stations are operational.
According to Paolo Woods, a renowned photographer, the radio "is always on" in Haiti. It is playing everywhere; in the shops and restaurants. "It is like background sound".
Every influential person in Haiti in need of audience gets space. Catholic nuns and voodoo priests get their share to broadcast religious material.
The history of radios in Haiti is a funny one. Radios arrived in the 1930s and would only tune to one and only one channel. US missionaries donated the very first receivers to the Haitians hoping that they would be faithful listeners of Radio Lumiere.
Haitian radio is the chief means of media communication on the island. Few have income to buy a TV, and those who have sets are subject to unreliable electricity service. Going online to access news coverage is impossible for all but the rich. Not only is newspaper distribution minimal, but 80% of the population are illiterate. The only information source available to everyone is the radio and radio stations are plentiful in Haiti. Reception is widely accessible in virtually every village on the island. Radios cost little to own and run on batteries.
Radio is vital for election coverage. Talk-radio's discussion formats are invaluable sources of information. They help keep citizens informed, and competition for air time is fierce among electoral candidates. In desperation, they carry out attacks of violence against stations and their hosts to stop negative coverage. Between 2000 and 2011, five violent acts occurred, in which radio facilities were disabled or destroyed, and radio commentators injured or killed.
The 2012 Digicel Entrepreneur of the Year went to Jean Lionel Pressoir. Mr. Pressoir is the current CEO of Lojistik SA Haiti Tours. The company Lojistik SA, was founded in 2004 and provides transportation for visitors. He is also radio host in Port-au-Prince. Jean Lionel Pressoir co-hosts the program Vision-Destination aired on Vision 2000.
The Digicel Entrepreneur of the year for 2012 was held on Tuesday, December 18 at the Hotel Karibe in Port-au-Prince. This year, the theme was "Building for our next". Mr. Jean Lionel Pressoir was the grand winner this year. He won in several categories such as education, tourism and culture.
What happens with the Former Director General of the National Police of Haiti?
There have been numerous rumors on the web that Mr. Mario Andresol has been under House Arrest in Haiti and is not able to live the country.
What does Mario Andresol have to say on that? "I am not on house arrest", according to the former DG of Haiti National Police in an interview with reporter Marie Lucie Bonhomme on Radio Vision 2000
"Mezanmi, Ayisyen Remin Fè Zin"
Veteran journalist Valery Numa is known for his contributions to Haitian media and his active participation in several philanthropic projects within the country. Born on 1974 in Camp-Perrin, a Sud department of Haiti in the town Les Cayes, Numa had a growing passion for journalism and acquired his degree in Social Communication from the State University of Haiti. He has then worked for several radio stations and newspapers such as Radio Canada, France's L'Humanité, and Reporters Without Borders, and owns his own production company called Index Production.
Valery Numa has also directed and released two films entitled "La Presse face his destiny" and "Mission". The film "Mission" won an award in 2006 during the 2nd International Film Festival Haitien Montreal. Outside journalism, Valery is an active representative of humanitarian NGO's PSI-Haiti and Vocation Group that campaign for blood donations and assist poverty-stricken Haitians. He was recently involved in a tragic car accident in late 2011 but was able to recover from his injuries shortly after.
The Superior Council of Judicial Power (CSPJ) just voted to break up the Permanent Electoral Council created by that they just created. It was reported by Radio Vision 2000 that 5 members of the CSPJ voted to get ride of the Contested CEP.
A total of 6 members of the Permanent Electoral Council have already been appointed. Me Josué Pierre-Louis was appointed President of that new CEP.
As you may remember, the decision for the establishment of the Electoral Council was not supported by many members of the society. Paul Evans said that President Martelly is plunging the country into a crisis. Rosny Desroches called it a "serious error" the decision of the Executive to form the CEP without the representatives of Parliament .
The son of President Michel Martelly has been denounced by Haitian lawyer Samuel Madistin who accused the Haitian government of nepotism for paying his son T-Micky $50,000 a Month.
He reported on Radio Vision 2000 that T-Micky receives $5,000 per concert and is being booked for communal events throughout the country. He is paid cash money by the National Palace, while groups like Tropicana, T-Vice and Djakout don't make that kind of money.
Samuel Madistin told Vision 2000 Anchorwoman Marie Lucie Bonhomme that the numbers were confirmed.
The Haitian lawyer will probably have to show in court where he found these numbers to accuse the president of Nepotism and Favoritism.
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.
