Veteran Journalist Ian Boyne is dead.

Mr. Boyne died this morning at the University Hospital of West Indies in St. Andrew.

Mr. Boyne was hospitalised earlier this month and was released shortly after.

He was host of Profile and Religious Hardtalk, aired on our sister station Television Jamaica (TVJ), as well as a columnist for the Sunday Gleaner.

In his early years, Ian Boyne worked with the Jamaica Information Service (JIS), then known as the Agency for Public Information (API) in the seventies. …

Prime Minister 

Prime Minister Andrew Holness said he was saddened by the tragic news.

He also described Mr. Boyne as a consummate professional.

In recounting his last conversation with Mr. Boyne while he had been in hospital, Mr. Holness noted that they had spoken at length about a number of topics such as health, local and international politics, as well as religion.

He recalled that the journalist had been optimistic about continuing his work.

Ian Boyne was a CGI pastor and also was a journalist in Jamaica.

He and I have shared some emails in the past and almost met once when I was in Jamaica (miscommunication interfered–he had not looked at certain emails in time).

His family is in my prayers.
