Monday November 26th, 2002 - The third in a series of national media training workshops will focus on presentation techniques for broadcasters. Local media practitioners are expected to receive tuition in such areas as moderating talk shows, handling Caribbean languages, voice intonation and presenting special topics. The sessions will be held at the Bay Gardens Hotel on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th November 2002.

Course facilitator Fae Ellington has been tutor at the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication (CARIMAC) since 1985, and involved in the media for the past thirty years. She joined the Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation in 1974 and presented a regular morning TV show for over twelve years. Ms. Ellington has been one of the main news anchors on radio and TV in Jamaica since the seventies.

At present, she is executive producer of a daily morning magazine and news anchor on KLAS FM in Jamaica. An accomplished actress, Ellington has won several awards for her distinguished work in the theatre. She is a specialist presenter, having been trained at the BBC and the University of the West Indies where she obtained a Master of Arts degree.

The training in presentation techniques forms part of the UNESCO’s programme of training to provide an understanding and insight into the power of mass media and the responsibility of media practitioners. The programme is supported by the UNESCO and organised by the Department of Information Services.
