The Caribbean Sea, and surrounding geographical islands



Sam's preferred geographical coverage




Sam Hollis is a freelance reported covering the Caribbean Sea, and countries bordering the West Indies. He was the newsman who broke the Panamanian Running Man story, having tracked down the backpacker and Youtube blogger, Marjorie Boyle.


Sam is a roving reporter based at the Trinidad Bugle. He is a keen member of the Caribbean Athletics Association and covers the Commonwealth Games.

He was once a competitive runner, and still keeps himself fit. He is single, not having found that special lady. But always on the look out - almost as much as he loves a good story. He is very fond of the shapely Marjorie Boyle.

He stays in touch with Charley Temple and Steve Green, sharing common interests. Especially after hearing of Charley's kidnap along the Amazon.


Like all reporters in the Caribbean, he keeps his ears to the ground for snippets as to Blackbeard and Captain Henry Morgan's unrecovered treasure. He is conscious of looting at archaeologically important sites like Port Royal, and the work of Blue Shield. He also knows the history as to how plantations were farmed using imported slaves from Africa, and that this was unashamedly a royal enterprise.


Sam is aware of the adventurous explorer and climate champion, John Storm and his amazing ship, the Elizabeth Swann. In this adventure, he gets to interview John and Hal for the BBC world service and Jill Bird, live with Jill Bird in London, as to the breaking news story, of John finding the remains of Henry Morgan, suspicious that no treasure was found, he suspects that John is keeping his cards close to his chest.
