Dane Knight launches onslaught on his employer Observer Radio

27

Observer Radio host has launched an onslaught on his employer, accusing them of “kissing the ass” of Prime Minister Gaston Browne and others in the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party.

At the start of his program Wednesday evening, Knight expressed his displeasure with the Observer News Department over its placement of Minister Samantha Marshall talking about a farmers market in the number three spot of the 5:30 newscast.

“A thief dem thief UPP idea with farmers market. Labour Party nuh have nuh idea. A thief dem thief UPP idea,” he said.

According to Knight, when the UPP had their farmers market it did not make Observer news.

“Let me say to Observer, please stop mek Labour Party use arwe fi win the next election. Please, mi a beg allyu, let’s stop making Labour Party use Observer fi win the next election, Knight said.

“Me come ya fi see di back a dem. They got to go. They got to go. dat a di main purpose mi come ya. They got to go.

“When me hear dem chupidness dey … ina Samantha constituency, tell me if dat a nuh campaigning and Observer Radio and dem run out out deh. If poor likkle me can see what Labour Party doing to Observer, the same neaga dem who did wan shut down Observer, den the people and dem who work ya can’t see dat?”

Knight went on to say tonight is for the UPP, because he wants them to win power.

“Labour Party neaga, me Dane Knight had enough a alyuh, so did show ya a fi get alyuh out a power,” he said.

“If no other show on Observer interested fi get alyuh out a power, well did one ya a fi get alyuh out a power.

“And imagine, arwe have two candidates involved with this radio station and are we a push Labour Party, something nuh wrong? Two candidates a run fi office that’s affiliated with this media house and arwe a push Labour Party, something definitely wrong.”

According to Knight, during the morning show on Observer Radio, the BPM’s Trevor Walker tried to share and incident he had with the Prime Minister’s Office and the Observer host “a talk bout ‘I want to hear the other side.’”

“Alyuh just gimmie one break,” a frustrated Knight said.

  1. So ANR: A wah wrang wid wah Knight say.He spoke the truth.I have been listening to Observer Radio.If Gaston passes gas.Observer News is all over it.They would smell it and eat it like hot cross bun.Stay the course Knight.

  2. KNIGHT is going off His ROCKER. Knight is LOW LIFE radio host. ABLP is getting to Him. Knight now see that UPP would never win the election in 2023. How can Someone go on the Radio each night CUSS CUSS. He is cracking up. Poor KNIGHT.

  3. Observer… Knight should be FIRED. He should NOT be allowed to attack the QUALIFIED Reporters at Observer in this manner. This is not good image for the establishment.

    • NOT A GOOD IMAGE AT ALL, THIS IS AWFUL..I SUPPORT MU MEDIA COLLEAGUES FOR CARRYINGNEWS WHERE IT HAPPENS,. OBVIOUSLY KNIGHT HAS NO TRAINING WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS OF NEWS. HE HAS A AGENDA TO TAKE LABOUT PARTY OUT OF POWER, BUT NEWS STILL HAPPENS ON ALL SIDES…KNIGHT WAKE UP…WHO IS GONNA WIN, WILLLLLL.

  4. Knight is right. It is very fishy. They bring over every word out of Labour mouth and Gaston looks like he has a direct line to get into a programme that is not call in. That morning host always saying he is trying to be fair. Bull crap. He need to keep out of politics. Talking stupid ness about have to be fair. Stupidness. Observer is not an ALP station. He see Labour doing or talking any nonsense like that?

    • But but but but I thought Obsever touts itself as the only INDEPENDENT medium in Antigua and Barbuda.

      Winston Derrick must be rolling over in his grave

    • you nor knight can tell Daren how to run his show in the mornings. Knight show borin nf and all he do a cuss labor tr8t like a broken record and guess what the same handful of ppl call in every single night and talk “Cowdung” just like the host “MISSA KNIGHT” lololol
      Sometimes i wonder if he talks to himself cause some nights, no body tarl call in except for the raper man who seem to have an obsession with Gaston’s name

  5. If Management allow Knight to attack Darren Matthew in this manner. Darren should QUIT Observer Radio. This not good for Observer IMAGE. Very bad for business. Shame on Knight.

    • Best he go Pointville Communications.
      Gassy, pull him een!

      Shelton is so immature and unprofessional there. Even something as simple as his own cell phone going off on air, he was on air blaming people for calling. Instead of acknowledging his phone should have been off.

  6. I had to read this posting twice . I cannot believe an employee PUBLICLY attacking His employer and Colleagues . Something is wrong with Knight. He is CRACKING. Time to take Him the Radio.

  7. Knight believe that He can BULLY everyone because He is a SHAREHOLDER In Observer Radio. Knight is a BULLY.

  8. Dave Lester Payne as the Station Manager you should have a meeting with Knight. This does not sound good.

    • NOT A GOOD IMAGE AT ALL, THIS IS AWFUL..I SUPPORT MU MEDIA COLLEAGUES FOR CARRYINGNEWS WHERE IT HAPPENS,. OBVIOUSLY KNIGHT HAS NO TRAINING WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS OF NEWS. HE HAS A AGENDA TO TAKE LABOUT PARTY OUT OF POWER, BUT NEWS STILL HAPPENS ON ALL SIDES…KNIGHT WAKE UP…WHO IS GONNA WIN, WILLLLLL.

  9. What many of you don’t realize is that Gaston Browne is still the PM of Antigua and Barbuda.

    So as professional journalists, they must report any news shared by the PM and his administration. They are still the head of government business.

    So please take your emotions out of it. You might not like it but that’s not a legitimate reason for the station to negate the offerings of the administration.

    If you’re unhappy with their style of governance, your best bet to exercise your constitutional right at the next general elections.

  10. When Observer’s ownership was transferred and Serpent announced he was throwing his hat in the political ring, he came out and said the newsroom would still be allowed to do its job. He still maintained that Observer was to be a voice for everyone. If the managing director has given that leverage to the newsroom, who is Dane Knight to attack the reporters? Observer needs to again decide if it wants to market itself as independent or a UPP- affiliated media house. If they want to do news, I’m sorry Knight but the ABLP- administration will be mentioned because… they’re in power. That’s the reality of it all. You are going to seriously challenge Darren Matthew Ward for wanting to maintain the integrity of his show and being responsible for saying, he wanted to hear the other side? How do you allow yourself to be this triggered? I get that you despise the ABLP but your hatred has gotten to irrational and unhealthy levels now.

  11. A who Dane Knight think he is.. ? Master of all surveys? Smh!!! His radio shows has proven very futile… It has very little substance…. Every night he acts like a cry cry baby and curses every day on his radio program…. Infact it evident that his radio program is not even capturing the audience that he expected to get…..Mr. Knight needs to understand that he can jump high or jump low, one orange monkey (you) will not and cannot derail the ABLP family & the great works that they are doing for this blessed nation

  12. What ever happened to free and fair media??? Mr. Knight, stop making this political, think about the farmers that worked their asses off to reap their harvest and sell to their communities.

    It wasn’t Minister Marshall that was in the farms planting and harvesting. Even though she provided technical support which she is applauded for, it’s all about the farmers and their success. Kudos to the farmers on a successful event tomorrow.

  13. wait! A he name MISSA KNIGHT???? The bonafide US Citizen who denounced Antigua and Barbuda passport as being of NO VALUE TO HIM!

  14. Knight and his usual wishful thinking smh boss you’re a dam idiot in your own right see boss, nuh study dem, a chupit yo chupit…………Observer doing the right thing and you doing the wrong thing, moving right along.

  15. Dane look like he used to bully people in school. Does he know anything about a young man up East facing mental health challenges?

  16. “According to Knight, during the morning show on Observer Radio, the BPM’s Trevor Walker tried to share and incident he had with the Prime Minister’s Office and the Observer host “a talk bout ‘I want to hear the other side.'”

    Is this what reporting is all about? So he wants us to hear one side, cast judgement and look like fools? Listen just give me a break please!!!!
