Africa 24, a 24-hour African news channel, has partnered with Afrotainment Family of channels to expand in Canada. The channel has apparently received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). The channel is broadcast in French language.
Africa 24’s core programming includes Africa News Room, a popular weekday live programme covering daily African headline news; a newscast every 30 minutes as well as other African focused content such as talk-shows, debates, sports news and analysis and magazine shows.
“The addition of a 24/7 African News channel gives the Afrotainment family of channels the opportunity to fill a void that exists in our channels packaging dedicated to the African Diaspora in America,” said Yves Bollanga, CEO of the Afrotainment Family of channels.
“Entering the Canadian market is a crucial step in our overall strategy to deliver African news to the world. This additional International expansion solidifies Africa 24 position as a leader in African News programming in North America. We are thrilled that the Canadian government, via its commission recognises our relevance and commitment.” said Constant Nemale, President of Africa 24.
