We’ve already discussed the women who are calling the shots and creating a name for themselves on the grounds in Haiti. They are mostly radio broadcasters, and handful work in the print journalism field, and in the digital realm. But what of the women who serve as Haiti’s television news anchors and TV hosts? Ya’ll already know how much I love to do research…Well, who are Haiti’s female anchors, TV hosts and personalities killing it in Haiti? Well, here they are…in no particular order…
