Tributes continued to pour in last evening for veteran broadcaster Dorraine Samuels, who passed away yesterday.

She died at the University Hospital of the West Indies after battling cancer. Samuels worked at the RJR/Gleaner group for 40 years and became a staple for news and talk programmes.

Managing Director of the RJR Gleaner Group, Gary Allen, says he’s been struggling with the loss. He described Dorraine as the consummate professional and a legend with a steady voice.

Mr Allen says she was not only engaging and hardworking but has left an indelible mark on the RJR/Gleaner Group and the nation.
