New TTT to counteract fake news

The new TTT television station must be the “gold standard” of quality in broadcasting and lead the charge in providing factual, accurate information and combating “fake news,” Prime Dr Keith Rowley has indicated.

He did so yesterday as he launched TTT Limited—formerly CNMG—at Maraval Road, Port-of-Spain.

“In closing CNMG, we’re opening the door to a brighter future,” Rowley added.

Rowley said TTT needed to adhere to high standards because of the seriousness of the role the media plays in citizens’ lives.

Young: Vacancies to be filled at new TTT

Government has moved up the date for the official launch of T&T Television (TTT).

The expected rebranding date is set for an early as next month.

This was revealed by Communications Minister Stuart Young at yesterday’s post Cabinet media briefing.

“CNMG is going to be rebranded TTT. So any previous decision taken or any previous talk about shutting down CNMG that is not going to happen. We are going to go and rebrand TTT. In fact, this morning the Prime Minister asked me at Cabinet how soon I expect to do it…I am hoping to do that by July,” Young said.
