Poleon said it was over a company he set up and registered and was told by the radio station to dissolve.

“I did not dissolve it,” Poleon said.

Efforts to get Tamara Gibson, Managing Director of RCI to comment on this breaking news have been futile, so far.

However reports are that Poleon’s letter of dismissal was forwarded last Friday and that the fall-out was over his application for a radio broadcast license.

The veteran broadcast Journalist is reportedly planning to set up his own radio station.

Poleon is a two-time Journalist of the Year and is credited with starting the station’s Midday News Edition and the popular News-spin call in talk show heard right after the midday news.

Poleon is the current anchor for the Daher Broadcasting Service nightly news.

  1. Tim, after 28 Years the the relationship should have been like family and it should have been an amicable departure. Sadly the usual long service farewell ritual of plaque and adulations was not to be. But your future looks bright as you have already taken steps to control it so be strong and brave. As you go forward remember the words of a song by JR X Oh plead my cause oh Jah and let me stand firm when the wicked rise against d III, order my steps Oh Jah. Remember your colleagues who gave you love over the years Tim. Don’t be bitter and maintain your sense of humor. All the best and Jah guidance in all your dealings

  2. Tim, I wish you every success on your new adventure. Sometimes we need to break eggs in order to make omelettes. Sometimes the loyal and dedicated employee on the ground floor needs to step up and become the entrepreneur and with that comes difficult decisions with awkward actions and consequences. Moving out of one’s comfort zone is never easy and sometimes, the social and strategic business structures put in place to make that difficult must be challenged and brushed aside in order to move on to the next level on our journey. I am proud of your achievements to date and wish you the very best as you pursue your dreams. Best wishes brother!
