- Caribbean Broadcasting Union
The Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) founded in 1970 is a not-for-profit association of public service and commercial broadcasters in the Caribbean and its secretariat is based in Barbados. Beginning in the mid-1980s, the CBU created several regionally syndicated programmes including "
CaribScope", "the Caribbean Newsline", the Caribbean News Review, "the Caribbean Business Weekly", Talk Caribbean, Riddim Express and " CaribVision" television news exchange among other programmes. These were some of the first television programmes to contribute to a nascent regional integration movement and enjoyed wide viewership, particularly CaribScope, a magazine containing arts, cultural and general interest features submitted by member stations. Leadership of the association is mainly rotated between representatives of the affiliated media houses. One June 9,200 the commercial operations of the CBU and the Caribbean News Agency (CANA) were merged into the Caribbean Media Corporation, also based in Barbados, which has carried on the business of television production begun by the CBU. The CBU's current mandate includes the facilitation of some broadcast services, representation, and training of the staff of member stations in support of a unified Caribbean community. It holds an Annual General Assembly (AGA) in one of the member nations every August. Member stations are drawn from the 15 member nations of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) (with the exception of Haiti), Suriname, the Netherland Antilles and Cuba.
