After 20 Years of Competition Creole Radio Stations Join Forces to help the Haitian Community

A decision by Radio TeteEnsemble and Radio Independence International to join forces is being welcomed by the Fort Myers and Immokalee Haitian population as a move that will strengthen the relationship between both communities.  Sergo Caprice, director and owner of RTE, and Ducarmel Bellevue, for RII, say the decision will enable the two stations to pool resources and enhance the services they provide to the Haitian community.
