My colleagues and I are deeply saddened by the passing of veteran Newscaster Nathalee Martinborough. Nathalee was an exceptional journalist, a dedicated professional, and a remarkable individual whose professionalism, talent and love for our country shaped her work as a journalist. The many ways she served Bahamians in general and Grand Bahamians in particular will forever be remembered.
As longtime viewers of ZNS Newsnight 13, we had the privilege of welcoming Nathalee into our homes for many years. She possessed a rare talent for presenting facts in a way that allowed us to form our own opinions, and her unwavering dedication to her profession was truly admirable.
Nathalee’s contributions to the development and expansion of the Bahamas Broadcasting Corporation were immeasurable. Her presence was a pillar of strength, and her influence undoubtedly made the corporation a better place. Her impact extended far beyond the newsroom, leaving an indelible mark on the entire broadcasting community.
In this time of sorrow, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you, the Martinborough family, and the entire Bahamas Broadcasting Corporation family. We share in your grief and the loss of a remarkable individual who will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. I was blessed to have gotten a chance to know her and benefitted from fair and balanced assessment and questions relative to crucial issues.
May you find comfort in the cherished memories of Nathalee and the knowledge that her legacy will continue to inspire and guide those who follow in her footsteps. She leaves behind a void that can never be filled, but her contributions will continue to benefit us all. On behalf of my wife Berlice, and the entire Free National Movement family I wish her entire family our sincere condolences. May she rest in peace.
With deepest sympathies,
Leader, Free National Movement
