The View, Bahamas score win-win with broadcasts

NASSAU, Bahamas (July 11, 2022) -- The View talk show returned to the air on July 11, after a week-long hiatus and record-breaking broadcasts from The Bahamas. 

The show’s broadcasts from Baha Mar in the week of June 27 were the highest rated shows the The View enjoyed in the previous three months.  As The View sorted through high viewership numbers, officials of the Ministry of Tourism, Investments, and Aviation acknowledged the promotional value of the broadcasts as well as the lucrative employment opportunities the daytime ABC show brought. 

“This was a win-win experience for The View and the Bahamas,” said Senator Randy Rolle, consultant at the Ministry of Tourism. “The show took on Bahamians in important roles, and those workers delivered quality work for them. Bahamians served as production managers, production assistants, broadcast specialists, musical guests, makeup artists, and in several other roles. We are proud of what was accomplished. We are grateful to Baha Mar for being at the forefront of it all, and we are also benefiting from the widespread exposure of our culture and attractions like Baha Bay to the world.” 

Senator Rolle said Ministry of Tourism officials briefly met the hosts of the show to express how pleased the Ministry was to help with the broadcasts. Hosts of The View are pictured backstage at Baha Mar with Bahamian officials.
