  1. Observer Radio is BROKE because of bad MANAGEMENT. The same Person cannot manage a His farm. Host working while DRUNK. Very bad operation.

    • Gaston in the meantime, your government ministers fall over themselves to appear on Observer even though you say that ABLP will boycott until Max Hurst is reinstated in the morning slot.
      Observer won
      ABLP 0

      Have you come up with any solutions to help people who are suffering?

    • They all have bad management skills yet still they want to manage the country? Serpant claims to be a mechanic & also a farmer. To this day we have not seen the fruits of his works. He is just a big failure and a big embarrassment to Antigua’s entrepreneurship or the management of any business

    • Are a staff member of observer, do you have the facts on what is been said by gassy or are you just so easily lead a stray?

  2. Not surprise , was just a matter of time. How can someone run a Radio Station with all AWFUL programming such as MISSA KNIGHT and VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. AWFUL

  3. @ Gaston

    ‘the benevolence of your administration’ – ANTIGUA BELONG TO YOU? THE GOVERNMENT IS YOURS?

    MAN DIS GUY IS A DICTATOR. WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THEY ARE VOTED BACK INTO POWER? WE ARE ALL DONE FOR!!!!

  4. @ SIMORE and PETE

    Who is more broke, a government that collected over 2 billion in CIP revenue and CANNOT PAY IT’S SUPPLIERS AND WORKERS LIKE CBH, PENSIONERS, SOCIAL SECURITY, SOLID WASTE etc, WHO CANNOT GET A SINGLE PROJECT OFF THE GROUND, or a company who pays its workers on time, doesn’t owe anyone?
    ABLP IS A FAILED GOVERNMENT, LACK COMPETENCE and HAS RAN ANTIGUA TO THE DOGS. THE STATE OF THE ROADS, BUILDINGS IN A STATE OF DESREPAIR, PEOPLE HUNGRY, HUNGRY, HUNGRY…..
    IF EVERYTHING IS SO GREAT IN ANTIGUA THEN JUST CALL THE ELECTION, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING ON??? PLEEEZZZZZ

  5. If this is so, now is the time for businesses to advertise on this platform. We shouldn’t allow another black owned business to fail now, should we? After all media should be diverse. And there should be avenues for varying views in this democratic state. Just saying.

  6. See why you shouldn’t sorry for Margaret dawg? Ten years ago when Gaston was broke and couldn’t get South Mall rented, APUA bailed him out and rented office space from him. That allowed him to get on his feet. All this sudden wealth in the past 10 years. Nothing lasts forever. Mightier than Gaston have fallen. This guy should read his bible and learn how to be humble.

  7. The Derricks were allowed to leave with plenty of government debt. They owned APUA millions of dollars. They did not pay in the Social Security, Medical Benefits and Education Levy from their employees. They didn’t pay in their ABST. And the list goes on. I hope this NEWSCo is not allowed to do the same. Every other company is adhering to the laws of the land. Why shouldn’t they? Before taking over a business you need to do a feasibility study to see what changes for survival you have. The Derricks kept the doors open by not paying their taxes. ZDK was in a similar situation. Radio broadcasting is not a lucrative business. You need donors to keep you afloat. When they started NEWSCO they had plenty of donors. I wonder what happened to them. Each program needs to pay for itself. Which I know Jojo does. And so does Darren.

  8. Gaston “Gassy” Browne:

    Let’s talk about Observer Radio instead of my disastrous economic failures.

    Let’s talk about Asot Michael instead of my misleading statement on implementing Antigua’s island wide water system.

    Let’s talk about the possibility of litigation with Trinidad instead of dealing with the high cost of living crisis here on the island.

    Let’s talk about growing cannabis in Antigua instead of paying pensioners and workers on time.

    There are just five “dead cat” narratives that our Prime Minister has mentioned in recent times to deflect from his political shortcomings.

    THERE WILL BE MORE NONSENSE LIKE THIS BEFORE BROWNE CALLS THE GENERAL ELECTION.

    Again, pure deflectionary tactics, but the critical thinkers amongst us are not easily fooled boss …

    • Here are a couple more to add to the list:
      Let’s talk about who among the UPP candidates doesn’t have a college degree instead of the state of the roads in some parts of Antigua. For example, just down the road from where the Honourable Prime Minister lives in Hodges Bay, the road to the west is FULL of holes.

      Let’s talk about how much more material things and money he has amassed compared to some on the opposite side of the isle instead of raising the standard of living for all Antiguans and paying hard-working folks in Antigua a decent wage to counteract inflation and the high cost of living.

  9. We would be in a sad state if Observer were to fail. A lot of times we think that people don’t care about things but sometimes it’s just because they don’t know, or they find out late. Look at the state the US is in now because of mercenary media. I don’t even listen to the little clips of the PM on here much less on his rant station. If it were not for Observer my family and I would have made a very poor medical choice. We need to save Observer.

  10. We will never allow observer to fail if that’s what the pm is hoping for..
    Set a date..what you waiting for??

  11. BAD HEART + BOUNCED CHEQUES!!!! The new UPP Brand

    too many candidates writing BOUNCED CHEQUES. BOUNCE BABY BOUNCE DAT CHEQUE.
    The BOUNCED CHEQUE Party captained by Harold loveLIE

  12. @ Hmmmmmmm

    HYPOCRITICAL ABLP MINIONS

    THE GREATEST WRITER OF BOUNCED CHEQUES IS YOUR ST PAUL REPRESENTATIVE, THE BIG SCAMP. HE MAY NOT BE DOING IT NOW BECAUSE THE ENRICHMENT SCAM IS IN OPERATION, BUT ONCE A BOUNCE CHEQUER WILL ALWAYS BE A BOUNCE CHEQUER.
    YOU GUYS HAVE NO SHAME. FROM POVERTY WHEN THE UPP BAILED GASTON OUT WITH RENT TO NOW HIGWAY NEPOTISM, GOD IS NOT SLEEPING, JUST REMEMBER THAT YOU GUYS HAVE CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN BECAUSE IT WILL PASS ON TO THE SECOND THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION.

  13. Antigua Observer NewsCo to the World.
    #1 Radio Station in the world.

    Backward to Cooks Dump Pointe Fm, Pointe Express, Gaston Browne, Flip Flop Pancake Oneal, From the Sideline, and all the other ALP minions.
    Bun dem big to little finger, Bun Dem.

    OBSERVER TO THE WORLD!!!
    GOD BLESS OBSERVER MEDIA!!!!

  14. Why save OBSERVER? If Serpent cannot manage His own business, close it down. Observer will eventually close. Radio Stations are not Lucrative Business. You must keep pumping money in the account. How often can the Owners.of OBSERVER Radio ask to the public for help. OBSERVER needs proper programming. To OBSERVER to survive the following changes must immediately take place.

    FIRE MISSA KNIGHT at night. This is the BIGGEST downfall of the Station.

    Replace Paul and Franz. A host cannot work while INTOXICATED.

    Install a proper music program.

    • @ SIMORE

      LOOK HOW FRANZ , PAUL AND MR KNIGHT HAVE YOU GUYS ON THE ROPE. THEY MUST BE EFFECTIVE. YOU GUYS WILL HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THEM FOR YEARS TO COME.
      SO BECAUSE GASTON SAY OBSERVER BROKE MEANS HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS SAYING???
      THE GUY IS A DAM LIAR…..CAN ANYONE BELIEVE ANYTHING HE SAYS?????
      I WOULD NEVER TAKE HIS WORD FOR ANYTHING UNLESS IT CAN BE PROVED!!

  15. That is what the ALP cable is hoping for, that observer is forced to close. They employ around 30 persons that the cult leader wants to see unemployed. That is more than is employed by his rumshop radio who he made sure get government advertising.

  16. Nikki Phoenix run gone
    Kadeem Joseph run gone
    Brenton run gone
    Martina Johnson run gone
    Mickel Brann run gone

    • Why did Shelton Daniel leave POINTE FM
      Why did Petra leave POINTE FM

      REMEMBER the man at POINTE FM that threaten to shoot his co-worker!
      What happen you forget.

      Observer has been in operation for over 20 years and only 5 employees have left!
      POINTE FM in 3 years have more bacchanal than a gansta story!

      HAVE MERCY-ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS!

  17. Since when Observer is on High Street? Gaston Browne, you are a diabolical liar. No one in their right and or wrong minds should listen to anything you say.

  18. Brenton !

    Where in that voice note I said anything about High St ?

    The ECAB building is located on Redcliffe St.

    Report the facts.
