Veteran broadcaster and former general manager of radio services at the Radio Jamaica Group, Francois St. Juste, passed away this morning (Monday, August 29). The revelation was made during a live broadcast.
The heartbreaking news has plunged the entire media and entertainment fraternity into mourning as Francois was a very beloved personality throughout the years.
