New faces on Media Council
The Media Council of Bermuda has appointed two new members.
Retired police officer Robin Henagulph will serve as a lay representative, replacing Rebecca Davies.
Journalist and author Rosemary Jones will serve as the print media representative, replacing Tom Vesey.
Both Mr Vesey and Ms Davies moved overseas last year.
“Mr Henagulph served for 25 years in the Bermuda Police Service, retiring as Chief Inspector. A member as well of the Bermuda Musical and Dramatic Society, he is an avid reader of newspapers and has a keen interest in media issues,” said a spokeswoman.
Ms Jones is a journalist with more than 20 years’ experience gained here and in Toronto, Canada.
She is currently president and editorial director of Brimstone Media Ltd, a company specialising in publications and museum exhibit production.
The eight-member panel was set up two years ago to hear complaints against the media.
Mr Henagulph and Ms Jones join chairman Christian Luthi, vice-chairman Wendell Emery, Amanda Outerbridge, Kelly Francis, Charles Webbe and Qian Dickinson. The appointments were made by the Appointments Committee, which comprises chairperson Venous Memari, Leopold Mills and Myra Virgil.
