Latest Jamaica News (McKoy’s News): Mello FM has moved to position itself as an even bigger player in the local media landscape by acquiring the building that housed The Gleaner Western Bureau.
The building, located at 9 Kings Street in Montego Bay, will be rebranded THE MELLO MEDIA CENTRE and forms part of the company’s strategic outlook to become a full-fledge media production company which offers, news, sports, entertainment, and local content.
“We have been operating at our Barnett Street location since our inception in 2003,” said Al Robinson, chairman and chief executive officer of Cornwall Broadcasting Media Group, owners of Mello FM. “At the time we were a community radio station, therefore, suitable for what we wanted. But, we have since outgrown that location and as such, we purchased the building that housed the Gleaner Western Bureau.”
“ The new building will help us to build out our Mello TV services and invest in additional digital technology to have a full-fledged news centre for all our operations. It will also facilitate us to capitalize on technologies such as fiber optics, 4k HD TV production and other modern equipment owing to the fact that it is a larger location.”
In recent times, Cornwall Broadcasting Company has emerged as one of the dominant media conglomerates in Jamaica. It operates three radio stations – Mello FM,; Energy FM, formerly HOT 102FM and RIDDIM FM, a reggae only station which covers western and Central Jamaica.
The company also has Mello TV which will soon air news, current affairs, weather and sports which can be viewed on Flow, Digicel Play, ReadyTV and Cornwall Communications Cable. Viewers and listeners of Mello’s media services can also access content from the Mello App which is available in the Google Play Store and Apple store. The company also publishes the Mandeville Weekly and Jamaica Weekly newspapers.
“The new location will also help us to further revolutionize media in Jamaica through our digital offerings and cutting edge technology. It will also help us to present news and local content in a fearless, accurate and balanced way while still maintaining the strong Mello brand,” he stated.
He said the new facility will also enable the company to serve its customers in Montego Bay more effectively because of its central location.
“Another benefit is that it will allow our customers and other partners to visit our location to conduct business in greater comfort as there will be more space to facilitate parking. We expect to start operating from the new location within 3 months and the new office will enable us to improve our all-round customer service delivery. We are now in the heart of downtown Montego Bay which will facilitate us to serve the city, and by extension the country even better,” he said.
