ANN7: Former eNCA reporter Peter Stemmet never had to deal on-air with technical problems with a reporter in a Soweto shebeen.

"Benjamin can you hear me? " (Echo-ey:) "Live to him now ..."

Is Peter Stemmet, the eNCA (DStv 403) sports reporter who've dumped that South African 24-hour news channel to join Infinity Media's ANN7 (DStv 405) perhaps having second thoughts about how this channel jumping decision is impacting his career?

A barrage of on-air mistakes and ongoing technical mess-ups have engulfed ANN7 since MultiChoice added the channel on Wednesday to its DStv platform.

On Saturday afternoon Peter Stemmet - who've never had to deal with a reporter in a shebeen before during his time at eNCA - sat in full view of viewers on ANN7 as sound and technical problems created yet another cringe moment on live TV.

Watch the awkwardness and Peter Stemmet and the dismissive wave of his hand as if wanting to slide the bad away. "What we'll do, is just move on."
