OCM gobbles up radio stations

OCM, the parent company of the Trinidad Express and TV6, expects to soon add considerable media muscle with the acquisition of the Citadel Group and its radio stations I95.5, Red 96.7 and Hitz 107.1 as well as Sidewalk Radio 92.3.

It means that, in a virtually unregulated local media climate, the OCM can soon have enormous power over what citizens read, see and hear; a la media magnate Rupert Murdoch who treated British Prime Ministers like caddies for decades. Surely, nothing can go wrong here.
