NEWS & NOTES: CVM’s Wayne Chen pleased with latest CEO selection + Usain Bolt confirms appearance at June meet in Oslo

GREAT EXPECTATIONS: “[The] aim for 2013 is the IAAF World T&F Championships in Moscow in August. My goal is to win three gold medals and repeat my Olympic Games success,” says Jamaican sprinting legend Usain Bolt, while announcing recently that he will compete at the ExxonMobil Bislett Games on June 13 in Oslo, Norway, for the third year in a row. “My 200M race will be an important stepping-stone towards that goal,” Bolt explained. “My preparations have been good this fall. I am injury-free, working hard, and everything is going according to plan,” added the world’s greatest sports star now possessed of more than 10 million fans on Facebook and 2.3 million Twitter followers. Bolt, who has been named sports personality of 2012 by several countries and important magazines, said he hopes to run a great race at the June meet. “I am looking forward to come back to Oslo this summer. I have many good memories from this great city and from the Bislett Stadium,” he said. “I was really happy with the time of 9.79 in the 100M last year; it was a new stadium record. I will run the 200M this year and look forward to competing in front of passionate and knowledgeable athletics fans.”

DULY APPOINTED: A little over five months after Al Edwards resigned from the position, CVM Television has appointed Andrew McGlone as the company’s new CEO, effective January 21. “He will no doubt be an asset to the industry and CVM in stewarding the station towards its goal of being fully digital by 2015,” says company chairman Wayne Chen (above). With over 15 years’ experience in the IT and media industries, McGlone has lived and worked in Europe, Africa, North America and the Caribbean, and has worked with such venerable institutions as Bytes Group, Grand Thornton, World Media Film and TV stations in Europe and North Africa. “Andrew has a wealth of experience in digital media and brings to CVM his proven ability in digital television broadcasting and filming,” a release from CVM stated.
