Liliane Pierre-Paul, journalist and radio icon dies at 70
Liliane Pierre-Paul, a famed radio journalist and outspoken champion of press freedom and democracy, has died. She was 70.
Pierre-Paul was at home in the hills above Port-au-Prince preparing to head down to her Kiskeya radio station Monday to do her popular 4 p.m. show on news and current affairs when she suffered a heart attack, her son, Harold Isaac, confirmed.
Radio Kiskeya later announced her death on air.
“My mother lived her life with dignity, integrity and solidarity to the Haitian people and its struggle for democracy, in a career that spanned nearly 50 years,” Isaac said.
