Stan Bishop

Stan Bishop began his career in journalism in March 2008 writing freelance for The VOICE newspaper for six weeks before being hired as a part-time journalist there when one of the company’s journalists was overseas on assignment.

Although he was initially told that the job would last only two weeks, he was able to demonstrate such high quality work that the company offered him a permanent job before that fortnight was over.

He remained with the company for two and a half years before migrating to the United States in September 2010. However, he returned to Saint Lucia in November 2011 for a short vacation but ended up taking up his former post at The VOICE the following month.

In September 2012, he was among the first batch of students in the one-year Media and Journalism Studies course run by Monroe College (St. Lucia) campus from which he now holds a certificate in that field of study.

His areas of coverage as a journalist include current affairs, politics, tourism, environmental issues, business, arts and entertainment and human interest. He also has two columns that are run in The VOICE, namely Strictly Business and If You Asked Me.

During the past nine years, Bishop has covered assignments that have taken him across the globe to countries such as Barbados, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Republic of China (Taiwan), Morocco and Israel.

On August 1, 2016, he was appointed Assistant Editor at The VOICE.In November 2016, he was appointed Vice-President of the Media Association of Saint Lucia (MASL).

On March 13, 2017, he was appointed Editor of The VOICE.
