SCOTCH PLAINS, New Jersey (December 29, 2012) – Caribbean-American television producer Eion “Dreadless Ras” Saunders who died unexpectedly in New York over the holiday season will be missed in the Caribbean and in the diaspora, asserted the Caribbean Media Exchange (CMEx).
“Eion was committed to the Caribbean and the coverage of developments at home and especially within the Diaspora,” reflected Bevan Springer, president of CMEx.
Eion, otherwise known as “Dreadless Ras”, founded ZYNC TV/NEW YORK LINKZ, and his shows most recently aired on TEMPO Networks in the US and the Caribbean.
“Eion was a selfless promoter of the Caribbean and worked beyond the call of duty to put the spotlight on Caribbean culture and entertainment using both traditional and social media,” said CMEx board member Gail Moaney, managing partner of Finn Partners.
“His body of work has not gone unnoticed, and this was certainly reflected by the number of awards and accolades he received throughout the community,” opined Moaney.
“Eion Saunders has left us a legacy. His commitment, passion and dedication will be missed,” Springer added. “We now pray for his family and loved ones during this difficult time. May he rest in peace.”
