Tribute to Winston Springer

Former CBU Board Member, Winston Springer


The following is the transcript of a statement from CBU Past President Vic Fernandes on the passing of former CBU Board Member, Winston Springer.

We have lost yet another Caribbean broadcaster in Winston Springer, former General Manager of Radio Saint Lucia and a former member of the Board of the Caribbean Broadcasting Union during my terms as President of the CBU.

We knew each other for over 40 years and as recently as two Saturdays ago spoke on the telephone while I was in Saint Lucia for the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival. We made plans that Saturday to get together but it didn’t happen and we promised that in the near future we would meet in person when I return to Saint Lucia.  Then came the news a couple of days ago that he had passed.

A reminder that tomorrow is promised to no one. I knew that he was undergoing some medical treatment and there was a medical condition, but he was upbeat about the possibilities going forward.

His contribution to broadcasting in Saint Lucia and his contribution to the Caribbean Broadcasting Union cannot be denied. I want to thank him for his service to country and region, and I say to his family you can feel proud of the work that he did over the years both in and out of broadcasting.

May he rest in peace and rise in eternal glory. Farewell my friend.
