Media association offers condolences on deaths of two broadcasters

The Association of Media Workers has issued condolences after the deaths of two media personalities over the space of just one weekend. 

In a social media post, the Association said Carlet Holder and Devon Matthews passed away within hours of each other. 

"There have been two T&T media deaths in the past 24 hours. Broadcasters Carlet Holder, 38, and Devon Matthews, 36, passed away within hours of each other."

The group said Matthews succumbed to a heart attack following a stage performance on Saturday night, while Holder passed away yesterday following a long battle with lupus.

Last week, the T&T media fraternity mourned the death of retired veteran photographer Noel Saldenha.
