(Barbados Nation) Peter Wickham has been fired as resident analyst on the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation’s (CBC) radio and television stations.
Wickham, a political consultant who assumed this post with CBC from December 2009, also hosted the radio talk show Talk Ya Talk and the Sunday night live television programme The People’s Business Live.
Wickham confirmed on Friday that he received a four-line letter on Thursday terminating the services of his organization, Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES), which is the entity that is contracted to provide the services as resident analyst. The termination is effective September 30.
“No rationale was given,” Wickham said. “Needless to say, I am not pleased.”
“Where there’s a termination letter there’s always the impression conveyed that there was incompetence, misbehaviour, non-performance or underperformance, and I hope that’s not the belief that goes out there,” he added.
