BREAKING. SABC3 postpones Expresso's morning timeslot extension that was planned to kick in from April.
You're reading it here first.
I can exclusively reveal that the planned half hour timeslot extension to SABC3's morning breakfast show Expresso that was planned to kick in from 1 April as I revealed in February RIGHT HERE will no longer be happening. The broadcaster now needs more time to implement this schedule change and selling airtime.
Expresso was set to be extended to 08:00 on weekday mornings from 07:30 from April, but sources just told me the scheduled extension just got postponed since the SABC's airtimes sales division needs more time.
Therefore, for April Expresso that is doing very well viewership wise and is being produced by Tswelopele Productions, will remain on weekday mornings from 05:00 to 07:30 for at least April. May is now the new month that is being considered for the timeslot extension.
