(SNO) — Former Saint Lucia diplomat and retired civil servant Earl Huntley is now the new host of popular midday talk show “News Spin” on Radio Caribbean International (RCI).

Huntley took over the reigns following the sacking of veteran journalist Timothy Poleon.

Poleon was reportedly fired a few days ago in connection with his registration of a company under which he was planning to start his own radio station.

His employers saw this as a clear conflict of interest but Poleon reportedly would not budge on his decision.

  1. That is strategic from the SLP as they would seek to control the narrative and push the message that the UWP is not doing a good job. Fact is Secra Gibson, owner of RCIis a known SLP ally so why would any right thinking person think that Tim was fired for any other reason. They just saw he was too popular and wanted to use his creation to peddle their own propaganda. The SLP is famous for that and would go to any lengths to secure an election victory.

  3. I made it my business to listen to Newspin religiously everyday, but for the past two days the programme has been so boring. RCI will no doubt lose its large. listenership. Can someone suggest another lunchtime call in programme I can listen to.

  4. Surely RCI could have done better.....I think Mr Huntley is a very poor choice to replace Tim...I hope its temporary.

    • You are one angry old soul may you RIP already idiot.

    • People may not like your comment but there is truth too it. Mr. Poleon bias to a specific party was easy for anybody to see. He placed great pressure on one administration daily before elections and after if anyone criticized the current he would bring back to sins of the past administration to deflect blame.

    • St. Lucia is the most environmentally astute country in the world. We are very good at recycling and reusing garbage.

    • @ Smh you want to know why they recycle the retired and why young people cant get a job? because the older folk were good at what they do and work hard and had more pride in their job and work ethic than young people now a days that want a get rich quick job. there are two young ones at land registry there and o my they are the worst, their face always set up they always vex they have attitude they waste people time and slow more than anything. honestly i dont know where they get people with such disgusting attitude.
