(SNO) — Another talk show in Saint Lucia bites the dust.
Politically Incorrect, hosted by Christopher Hunte on Choice TV, has been discontinued by the company.
In a message posted on its website on Monday, the television station’s parent company, Mediazone Productions Inc., said they decided to discontinue production of the show after a “most recent review”, and thanked Hunte for making the show a “success”.
Here is the full statement:
“Mediazone Productions Inc, content producer and management company for Choice Media Network (TV & Digital), undertakes reviews of all programming produced by the company on a regular basis. This is done to ensure that our resources are deployed in a way that best contributes to the company’s objectives in order to meet our mandate to inform, educate, entertain and engage our audiences.
“After our most recent review, we have made the carefully considered decision to discontinue production and broadcast of Politically Incorrect. We acknowledge the intense buzz the show garnered in its short run, and assure our valued viewership that the show’s timeslot will be filled with programming that our viewers can learn from and be entertained by.
“We offer our sincere thanks to host Christopher Hunte, the production team, and you – the loyal viewer – for making Politically Incorrect the success that it was during its run on air. The show will live on as part of our online archive, where past episodes can be viewed on our Facebook Page.
“Stay tuned for more exciting updates from Choice TV.”
The discontinuation of Politically Incorrect follows that of Radio Caribbean International’s ‘Newsspin’ which made its final spin last Friday after 20 years. The management said the move was part of the company’s re-branding campaign. The show’s long-time host, Timothy Poleon, was fired about two weeks prior to the discontinuation of the show. He has since started a new show on Real FM.
Another talk show, ‘Can I Help You’, hosted by former government minister and lawyer, Richard Frederick, on MBC television, will also not be aired for an unspecified amount of time. The host said he is taking a break but promised to return.
