HITZ FM Radio Station has been targetted by burglars.
According to a statement issued on behalf of the Sans Souci based radio station, on the morning of Sunday November 25, Manager Cameron ‘Asylum’ Holder discovered that the station had been broken into and thieves had stolen all radio related equipment together with multiple technical devices such as computers, monitors, Amps and other equipment necessary to operate the station.
“The station has managed to be back on air, although not being able to operate at its full capacity, but will resume complete services in a few days,” the statement noted.
HITZ FM has appealed to anyone having information about the robbery, to please inform the Royal Saint Lucia Police or contact (758) 457-7488.
The media house has called on members of the public to be aware that the stolen items may be offered to them for sale.
It said the public should refrain from buying them.
HITZ FM was established in Saint Lucia since 2014, and after a hiatus of about one year, resumed operations under new management as of Monday, November 12, 2018, the statement observed.
“The station having everything in place with a new team of announcers and with new and innovative programs, was to due to host its Re-Launch with two ‘Open Days’ at their new premises in Sans Souci, Castries on November 28 and 29, to welcome clients and potential sponsors,” it noted.
