ANN7 news channel on DStv adds 3 new Saturday news shows, Newsweek, World Round Up, and Africa at a Glance.


ANN7 (DStv 405) has added three weekend programmes, Africa at a Glance, World Round Up and Newsweek from this past weekend.

None of them, or any of the repeats appear on MultiChoice's DStv electronic programme guide (EPG) for ANN7 so viewers can't set any actual recordings.

Africa at a Glance is broadcast on Saturday mornings at 06:30 and again on Sundays nights at 21:00 on ANN7. The show is produced by Charmaine Ngwenyama.

"I'm excited to be producing a show that will link viewers to African stories that seldom make it pass the news desk. The show will give viewers an insight on all the good and bad news stories in Africa over the past week".

World Round Up is broadcast on ANN7 on Saturdays at 13:30 and is produced by Fabian Rainers and ANN7 says the show focuses on world news in a compelling and engaging manner.

"I've always wanted to produce a show dedicated to informing the audience about what is happening in their world," says Fabian Rainers. "Often we are so caught up in our own country, ignoring atrocities that take place in other parts of the world; the suffering of other people".

Newsweek is broadcast on ANN7 on Saturday's at 16:00 and repeated on Sundays at 12:30.

"We understand that viewers might not have the time to catch up on the news every moment, so we will be bringing them Newsweek which is 30 minutes of non-stop news, focused on recapping the week's biggest events," says producer Pankaj Mishra.
