(Hamilton, Bermuda) Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown, J.P., M.P., Premier of Bermuda today announced that he will be hosting a Media Roundtable allowing members of the media to question him on issues related to his tenure as Premier. Representatives from the Royal Gazette, Bermuda Broadcasting Company, VSB, The Bermuda Sun, The Worker’s Voice, Bernews and columnist Stuart Hayward have been invited to participate.
The Premier said, “When I first assumed the office of the Premier, I was determined to increase access to both the media and the public. Whether through the Thursday Meetings, the Brown Bag Lunches or the Open Mic Nights we have granted unprecedented access and have been very pleased with the response. By allowing key members of the media to engage in an unrestricted question and answer session with me, I believe that I am completing this marathon the way I began it; with openness and a willingness to engage with all sectors of the community.”
The Premier added, “Many of the representatives selected to participate in the panel are among some of my loudest and most vocal critics. I am excited to be in a position to give them have one final opportunity to raise tough, probing and pointed questions before completing my tenure in office.”
The Media Roundtable is free, open to the general public and will be held on Monday October 11 at the Berkeley Cafeterium starting at 8pm
