Joseph “Joe” Damas was one of these uncommon Haitian animators, since of his seniority in the milieu with a lot more than 30 several years of vocation, to have built university and marked its time. From Radio Métropole where by he began his radio career in 1977, to Magik Stereo, in which he put in some time ahead of returning to Radio Métropole, Joseph Damas was appointed in August 2013, Director Common of the Radio Télévision Nationale d’Haiti (RTNH), with no stopping his profession as an animator.
Joe Damas is the kind of animator who normally shocked his listeners by using them off the overwhelmed path with his unusual and charming voice, [he was also a singer and guitarist]. Modeste, usually the just replicated at the microphone, multipurpose and respectful of his collaborators, Joe Damas leaves a terrific emptiness in the discipline of the radio in Haiti.
In this painful circumstance, the Ministry of Culture and Communication expresses its deepest sympathy to the relatives of “Joe”, mates, collaborators, all individuals who have supported it in its top battle in opposition to cancer and its thousands of devoted listeners who are now mourning the departure of their favourite animator.
