The Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) has welcomed two (2) new members to its ranks.
The Guyana National Broadcasting Authority and the Belize Press Office joined the regional body’s membership which spans twenty-one countries and territories in the Dutch, English, French and Spanish Caribbean.
The Authority, which regulates Guyanese television, radio and cable services, came on board as an associate member.
The Belize Press Office also joined as an associate member. The BPO produces weekly television news magazines as part of its responsibility for media relations and information dissemination for the government of Belize.
The two newest members of the Union will now be able to enjoy the many benefits of CBU membership including access to rights-free programming through the CBU Media Share portal, eligibility to enter the Caribbean Broadcasting Awards, participation in training sponsored by CBU partners, first-look at industry reports, and discounts on attendance at the 50th Annual General Assembly, scheduled for San Andres Island Colombia in August 2019.
