(CNS): The local television station, Cayman 27, which is now owned by Hurley’s Media Ltd, welcomed back veteran journalist Tammi Sulliman this month to manage its news, community content, programming and operations. Sulliman, who is originally from Trinidad and has worked in the news business for more than 18 years, joined Cayman Net News as a print journalist in 2007 before transitioning to TV. Since moving to Cayman, she has worked as a reporter and talk show host and was Cayman 27’s news director before she left in 2016 to work for the islands’ largest developer, the Dart Group, dealing with public relations.
However, Sulliman is returning to the news room, where she will host a weekly political talk show, as well as anchor the news on occasion and co-host the station’s talk show, Cayman Crosstalk, which is simultaneously broadcast across both Cayman 27 and Rooster 101.9.
“It is a privilege to once again serve the Cayman Islands community through local news, sports and community content,” Sulliman said. “Coming back to Cayman 27 allows me to work together with a committed team to ensure the production and dissemination of accurate information, balanced coverage and quality entertainment. Equally important to me is the continued training of young Caymanians in the fields of journalism and television production, a service Cayman 27 has been providing since its inception in 1992.”
The station’s owner and managing director of Hurley’s Media, Randy Merren, was clearly delighted to have this popular and talented news veteran back on the team.
“We are happy to welcome Tammi back home to Cayman 27, where she served the country for more than a decade, covering political and social issues,” he said. “Tammi brings with her institutional knowledge and experience of television and the local landscape. Her earned credibility will serve to enhance the work we do at the TV station, bringing the stories and programming that matters most to the people of the Cayman Islands.”
