BREAKING. Shahan Ramkissoon from the eNews Channel is in New Jersey, America for Whitney Houston stories.
The eNews Channel (DStv 403) has dispatched its reporter Shahan Ramkissoon to America who is currently in New Jersey, America, to file stories about Whitney Houston who's public funeral is expected to take place this coming weekend.
The usually snappy dresser filed some of his story today from inside a rental vehicle, in East Orange, with stubble and a shemagh scarf.
In today's story on the eNews Channel Shahan Ramkissoon visited and interviewed neighbours (who seemed reluctant to talk) living opposite Whitney Houston's childhood home, and went to a bakery, the Supreme Bakery where she often went to.
I asked the eNews Channel as to why Shahan Ramkissoon was sent and how long he will be staying in America, with the channel telling me that he was actually already there on holiday and quickly roped in to assist with additional Whitney Houston news coverage.
''Shahan Ramkissoon will stay in New York and New Jersey until the weekend. He's looking at Whitney Houston's life and rise to fame – the colour pieces behind the story. The news desk is covering the hard news angles via international news agencies.''
''It was a collective editors' decision to keep Shahan in New York - he was already there on holiday - when the eNews Channel heard of her death,'' the news channel tells me.
