Basseterre February 13, 2017: SKNVIBES has launched a new talk show titled The Bottom Line which focuses on political, economic and cultural issues happening in St Kitts and Nevis, the Caribbean region and further afield. The program, delivered in a panel discussion format, is a production of SKNVIBES, filmed out of the OPEN Creative Campus and hosted by Stanford Conway, former news editor for The Leeward Times newspaper.
The first episode, which can be watched on the sknvibes.com online platform, features Dwyer Astaphan Attorney-at-law at Nevis Realty, Newrish Nitash St Kitts and Nevis Educator, Dr. Terrance Drew St Kitts and Nevis Labour Party in Constancy #8 and Jonel Powell Team Unity Constituency #2 all coming together to weigh in on a recently published article on SKNVIBES titled “Isn’t It Time Politicians Moved Away from The Blame Game?”
Commenting on the new show, the host Stanford Conway said The Bottom Line was informed by a need to spark conversation around pertinent issues and to keep leadership and the electorate engaged around national and regional development as well as offer a platform for feedback.
“The media have a broader responsibility beyond reporting about issues. Bringing experts to discuss and expound more on ongoing debates is healthy and this level of insight is appreciated, in that it sparks a curiosity in the viewers and offers much needed perspective on every day issues affecting the people,” said Conway.
The Bottom Line is a first of a series of new programming that will be produced by SKNVIBES in conjunction with OPEN Studios towards bringing together voices in healthy debates as the future of media moves from written word to more interactive and digitally supported content.
