[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Chronicle Newspaper will have a new Editor – in – Chief effective September 01, 2015 in the person of Nigel Williams, who previously served as the Editor – in – Chief of the Opposition aligned, Guyana Times Newspaper.
The deal was sealed on Tuesday, August 25, with the signing of the contract between Williams and the Company’s General Manager, Michael Gordon.
The current Acting Editor-in-Chief, Mark Ramotar, remains in the employ of the Company; however it is unclear at this time as to what position he will be placed.
Mark Ramotar has been Head of Chronicle’s Newsroom and Editorial Department for the past eight years.
INews was reliably informed that he had offered to tender his resignation when the new APNU+AFC government was sworn into office.
However, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo declined to accept Ramotar’s resignation, in fact advising him to stay on at the Chronicle.
