RoofTropixx Media has established linkages with local and overseas diaspora groups, associations, institutions, business houses and others, with a view to regularly showcase the goings-on in their overseas communities as well as what takes place in St Lucia. The intention is to also work with the Ministry of External Affairs, the office of Diaspora Affairs and St Lucia’s Diplomatic Corps to strengthen linkages between our people at home and abroad.

The broadcast team comprises an exciting blend of seasoned veterans and debutants, all working towards delivering this first-of-its-kind product.

Our audio and video programming will comprise Kweyol, educational, transportation, religious shows; dee jays, news, sports, obituaries, a fan club, live Jazz, a tourism show and lots of live entertainment from St Lucia and other parts of the world.

Footage will also be edited and rebroadcast as video reruns and podcasts.

The see-through design of the RoofTropixx Media studios integrates seamlessly with the open, rustic theme of Russell’s Rooftop – a blend which will work perfectly for audience participatory events.

Additionally, the proximity of the main bar, kitchen and lounge allows for patrons to be served while taking in the live broadcasts and following COVID protocols. Our cameras will constantly pick up the high visibility areas of the facility, decorated with ‘made in St Lucia’ products and other paraphernalia and shown to the world.

The indoor/outdoor design of the facility with the breathtaking vistas of the city of Castries, the north coast of the island and the sight of Martinique on a clear day complete the appeal of RoofTropixx Media on Russell’s Rooftop as a must-visit when sightseeing in St Lucia.

The first iteration of RoofTropixx Media live programming will be for a four week period, scheduled from 6am to 12 noon (Mon – Fri) and 6pm to 11pm (Saturdays). The programming for the first month is as follows:

The third and final iteration will add the 6pm to 12 midnight slot comprising various talk shows, live performances and audience-participatory events (live from the Rooftop and/or off-venue).
