ST GEORGE'S, Grenada, CMC - Veteran journalist Rawle Titus was on Saturday elected president of the Media Workers Association of Grenada during its annual general meeting.

Titus, who is a correspondent for the Caribbean Media Corporation, has been involved in media for the past 20 years.

During his acceptance speech, he called on members to become more actively involved in the work of the association, which represents media workers here.

"We should not forget our role to inform, educate and entertain our audience whether it's print or electronic," said Titus, who had been serving as president of the association for nine months before being elected.

"Although some may view us as being political, we should not let their opinion stop us from doing what is right."

The other members of the executive are Nicole Best, vice president; Roderick St Clair, second vice president; Raymond Roberts, secretary; Linda Straker, assistant secretary; and Tricia Reuben, treasurer.
