Report: South African community television network will "link up" with VOA.

Posted: 07 Apr 2010

"The running of Bay TV, the Empangeni [KwaZulu-Natal Province], South Africa-based community television network, will now be in the hands of Committed Artists which is the company owned by the well known composer and producer Mbongeni Ngema ... Ngema said the take-over will see a name-change from ‘Bay TV’ to ‘Zulu TV’ as the new station’s envisaged programme content will aim for an approximate 70/30 split in isiZulu and English respectively. ... 'To ensure a degree of international coverage, we will also be linking up with Voice of America and other networks, and we have approached Multichoice to include Zulu TV as part of its DSTV bouquet options.'" Screen Africa, 7 April 2010.
