The Belize Times is a closely knit team which operates more like a family unit than a formal business organization. Each member of our small staff has a very specific role to play in ensuring that the newspaper comes out each and every week and that it contains quality information which will provide a service to the People’s United Party and to the Nation.
Love Television produces and airs a number of informative and entertaining programs.
Great Belize Productions Ltd. began operations as a small video production facility in 1982, less than one year after the introduction of television to Belize. With a staff never numbering more than five people, it specialized in producing commercials, documentaries and corporate promotions. In 1991 GBP was granted a broadcasting license by the government and became the nation’s first television station with its own production capability.
Since that time, broadcasting on Channel 5 from Belize City and repeating on different frequencies throughout the country, Great Belize Television has become Belize’s leading television station and foremost provider of local and regional programming. Operating with a staff of 30, the station has gained an international reputation for producing high quality work.
The idea for the KREM Radio station originated in early 1979 while Rufus X and I were visiting New Orleans. There was a New Orleans deejay I liked, by the name of Sister Love, and one day Rufus and his cousin, Sam Wiley, who was our host, showed me the building where the radio station which featured Sister Love was located. It was quite a modest, one flat structure, much smaller than the three story Albert Cattouse Building from where the Belize government monopoly station – Radio Belize – was broadcasting.
