The Antigua & Barbuda Broadcasting Services, (ABS) and the entire nation is mourning the death of one of the company’s longest-serving employees.

The government-run entity today announced the passing of Deputy Director of Technical Services, Cortwright Grant.

Grant, who’s career in broadcast media spanned close to 40 years, died this morning after a period of illness. He was 57-years-old.

The Director was reportedly among the first crop of cameramen to join the entity at its previous headquarters at Scotts Hill.

Grant is also remembered for his work with region entity, Caribbean Broadcasting Unit, CBU.

Notably, he was reportedly a part of the team that captured Nelson Mandela’s historic visit to St. Lucia in 1998.

  1. God bless his soul. Thank you for serving your Antigua nation and you will be rewarded in heaven for your hard work and service to our country. God bless his family also.

  2. My heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and coworkers of Mr. Grant. As a past student of the Newfield Primary School, he was one of our biggest supporters at ABS when we competed in and dominated Spellbound. Those days the ABS studio was at Scotts Hill and Spellbound was hosted by Mr. Alphonse Derrick and produced by Hilda Davis. Fast forward years later, I crossed paths with him late last year while he was walking to work. I instantly recognized him and told him who I was. He remembered my face he said. A really cool, mellow, down-to-earth guy.

    My heartfelt prayers to all who will miss him. But remember death can never take the beautiful memories. Sleep on Mr. Grant from the past students and Spellbound crew of the Newfield Primary School. Thank you for supporting us.
