The Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) was established in 2000 as result of a merger between the Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) and the Caribbean News Agency (CANA).
CMC regards itself as both an outgrowth of the regional integration movement and an instrument for fostering closer integration. A unique multi-media organization, CMC was born out of a desire to encourage media integration as the Caribbean islands, emerging from the vestiges of colonialism sought to develop the appropriate infrastructure for integrating their inherent plantain economies.
Based in Barbados, CMC provides a print (wire) and television service to its clients and is the foremost independent media establishment in the Caribbean. Its mission is to be a customer-focused, growth-oriented company dedicated to Caribbean advancement through the timely provision of high quality news, sports, information and related services.
