Freeport, Grand Bahamas: Oswald ‘why you scared of the word MURDER’ Brown has been removed as Managing Director/General Manager of the Freeport News. The shocking announcement was revealed at the Freeport daily during a staff meeting on Monday.
Reports are that staffers were celebrating for joy upon hearing the news, as Mr. Olly Ferguson of James Sarles Realty was announced to assume the top position at the morning daily. Brown will now take up the post as News Editor.
Bahamas Press learned from a credible source on the board of Colina, that Oswald ‘why you scared of the word murder’ Brown’s days are numbered at the newspaper, “…for he has lost vision and support from his staff at the paper.”
The new GM is the grandson of Sir Etienne Dupuch, founder of the Tribune. Mr. Ferguson is scheduled to begin on Monday, as it is noted he will make new decisions for a new direction at the Freeport News, the board member noted . Word around the paper was that Brown had locked heads several times with management teams in Nassau and sought to take the Freeport newspaper into an opposite downhill direction against the wishes of the Nassau operators.
Word coming to Bahamas Press confirms that Brown took the announcement with difficulty and began, as an eyewitness noted, “breaking down with crocodile tears” upon hearing the announcement of his new boss, where raced to his office and refused to see anyone.
Bahamas Press has also learned that some additional adjustment will also begin at the Nassau Guardian, the parent company of the Freeport News, where meetings are schedule to begin with staff sometime next week with Colina’s management.
Bahamas Press can now conclude that a circle on the control of media is now completed as the Dupuch/Carron’s media empire has now moved into Grand Bahama. Now with Olly Ferguson (Dupuch Grandson) at the top in Grand Bahama, Robert Carron (Dupuch adopted Grandson) at the top in the Guardian and ‘The Iron Lady’ Eileen Dupuch-Carron at the top of the Tribune all we can say is, “THE HAITAINS TAKING OVER!”
