“Come Chat Wid MI” presently airs in New York on the Caribbean International Network (CIN) every Sunday and has become appointment television for its large Caribbean community. Head of CVM TV, Shamena Khan, states “CVM leads the way once more, by bringing the Tri-State Diaspora home…must watch on CVM TV, Friday December 20th at 10:00 PM”.

Ziggie Bless, the host of “Come Chat Wid Mi” brings to the audience the latest in fashion, food, fun and interviews with local New Yorkers and visiting Caribbean personalities. Ziggie’s popularity in New York recently convinced Bayridge Nissan to feature him in a TV commercial promoting the Nissan brand and the commercial was aired not only on CIN but also on MTV, BET, VH1 and New York 1.

Stephen Hill, CEO of CIN feels that the initiative to present content about the diaspora is an important step as the diaspora contribute significantly to the economic wellbeing of Jamaica by sending annually over US$2 billion in remittances, large purchases of homes throughout the island and investments in small business enterprises, substantial donations to schools and hospitals and frequent travel to and from Jamaica. He further stated that, “the airing of “Come Chat Wid Mi” will be a joy to Jamaicans who can weekly see family and friends and their accomplishments. It will be an inspiration to young Jamaicans who can see what is possible”.
