Kudos to my colleague Dorraine Samuels for her years as the face of Prime Time News on @televisionjam. Grateful that her work continues on radio where her poise, polish and professionalism ensure that she continues to be one of the very best!

 

Yvonne Johnson

Yes, me did love her… me mash up a way till me can’t talk… you have to realise good radio personality, a family… you anticipate when they coming on and listen and laugh to the little jokes that they throw in… can’t believe Dorraine gone… walk good, Dorraine!

 

Nicola James

Jamaica has truly lost an icon. Such a beautiful soul. Gone but will not be forgotten RIP Angel.

 

Elsie Knight

RIP Dorraine, my condolences to the family. You made Jamaica proud; sleep on beloved, only God knows.

 

Oliviadel Clarke

Precious Gem and role model that made an impact to our listening ear. Gone but will not be forgotten… well done Dorraine! I salute you!!! Walk good….

 

Ryanna Jane Anderson

It’s one of those deaths that hit you like a moving train. I last listen to her on International Women’s Day and she was struggling to read the midday news, sigh. But on her morning show 9:58 she says God’s willing I’ll be back Monday morning to pour you a big mug of coffee… rest well, Donut.

 

Maria Newell

That golden voice is no more. Such a personality hard to find. RIP. Ur voice dwells in my head.

 

Kaniel Cole

Mi feel this, a swear, it’s almost like a family member has passed gone on. She, Allan Magnus & Dennis Hall were giants in the biz. I am going to miss her :-(. She had that voice that could soothe any storm, any headache, any sorrow. Walk good #AuntyDorraine

 

Taneisha Burton

Legendary Dorraine Samuels was a living monument, an architect of pronouncing words and voice that will live on in our ears… she was the voice of all voices in the media field.

 

Michelle Tucker

Beautiful, poised and professional; Dorraine Samuels gone but never forgotten.

 

Dan Gabbi

Dorraine Samuels, Allan Magnus were the soundtrack of my early mornings while getting ready for primary school in the 1980s. Rest in Peace… She contributed a lot to our lives. Even now when I hear Mike and the Mechanics In The Living Years, I always remember those two.

 

Jodi Ann

Thank you #DorraineSamuels for years of indelible service to Jamaican media. Walk good in heaven.

 

Dorraine DD

My condolences to her family and friends. I know my mom will miss you dearly because she loved you from way back, hence she named me after you. Rest in peace, my namesake.

 

Martin Johnson

Saddest day for Jamaicans in all fraternity, the passing of our Dorraine Samuels. God knows best. RIP aunty Dorraine.

 

Lauren Allen

Those we hold close to our hearts never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they brought into our lives. My condolence to the family. May her soul rest in eternal peace.

 

Brown Abz

This is so sad! For the working class, make sure you travel and do all the things you’ve always dreamed of doing. Too many times we die right after retirement. Smh. Walk good, Dorraine.

 

Cecil Edwards

Jamaica and the world lose a stalwart. Rest in paradise, Dorraine.
