eNCA (DStv 403) has once again adjusted its weekday anchor line-up of the South African TV news channel, produced by eMedia Investments for MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV service, with the adjustment coming into effect from Monday 5 April.
Among the changes, eNCA decided to dump the name of its long-running Lunchtime timeslot after the recently abrupt and unexplained departure of Jeremy Maggs, replacing it with The Midday View that will now be anchored by Dan Moyane.
"Our viewers are at the heart of everything we do and the fine-tuning of content and changes to our line-up is aligned with our viewer interests and trends," says eNCA.
eNCA's anchor line-up and daypart timeslots are now as follow:
The South African Morning (6:00 - 9:00)
Tumelo Mothotoane and Jane Dutton bring viewers unique, interesting and entertaining interviews as well as sport and weather updates.
NewsLink (9:00 - 11:00)
Uveka Rangappa anchors during the early morning timeslot, bringing viewers up-to-date news and focused interviews, as well as back-stories behind the news headlines.
All Angles (11:00 - 13:00)
Thulasizwe Simelane anchors this late morning timeslot, bringing viewers a contextual and probing guide to breaking news, developing stories, newsmaker interviews and analysis.
The Midday View (13:00 - 15:00)
Dan Moyane anchors this renamed timeslot during the early afternoon block on eNCA, looking at the latest top stories, breaking news, live reports and views from across South Africa and beyond.
The Lead (15:00 - 17:00)
Shahan Ramkissoon continues to anchor the late afternoon timeslot on eNCA with live updates on the day's top stories, as well as doing interviews with current newsmakers.
