Marco Lopez takes over editorial desk at Amandala

On January 4, 2021, Mr. Marco Lopez became the newly appointed Editor-in-chief at Amandala, following the retirement of Mr. Russell Vellos, who has shouldered the duties at the newspaper’s editorial desk with dedication and diligence since 1996.

Marco, 28, is a graduate of Edward P. Yorke High School, Wesley Junior College, and the University of the West Indies Open Campus in Belize. Despite his relative youth, Marco has many years of working experience, including seven years in the media. Prior to doing a stellar job as a freelance investigative reporter for the Amandala over the last five months, he worked as a reporter, production assistant, and videographer /video editor/web administrator for Krem Television.

Marco holds a Certificate in Computer Science & Technology, an Associate degree in Paralegal Studies, and also an A-Level Law Certificate.

The Amandala has every confidence in the talent, enthusiasm and leadership skills of Mr. Lopez, and we look forward to his building on the work of the giants who have held the job before him.
