Ricardo Welch was best known for his fiery attacks on politicians.

The death of well known political talk show host, Ricardo Welch, best known as Gladiator, in Trinidad and Tobago, has many now questioning whether the country will see any ease in criminal activity, anytime soon. Welch, was shot in the chest while leaving his home, in his vehicle, this morning. He died on the spot. His former employer, Soca artist, Neil Iwer George, spoke with EBUZZTT in the aftermath of the news, telling us that he is saddened by it all.

Iwer George operates radio station, 91.9FM. The company boasts two locations, in Trinidad and in sister isle, Tobago. Initially, Iwer’s vision for 91.9FM, substantiated his passion to push Soca music to its full potential, having launched what was then, the all soca station, Trinibashment 91.9FM. It was later re-engineered to suit an urban format, rebranded as The Street 91.9FM. Gladiator worked at the frequency, having come on board with Iwer to offer lovers of politics, commentary from his personal perspective, mixed of course, with laughter and ‘piccong.’ The 54-year-old worked there for some time before moving on.

Today, a reflective Iwer George told Ebuzztt:

The Gladiator was a great journalist in his own right. He worked for me for many years at 91.9FM and it is a very sad day to see him go so unexpectedly. He will be missed by many. On behalf of the management and staff of The Street 91.9FM, we send our condolences to the family of the late, great Ricardo Welch.
