It seems we will be seeing quite a number of familiar faces on the new TV Africa.
Just recently, Stacy Amoateng, Kojo Frimpong left TV3 and Viasat 1 respectively for TV Africa and the latest to the folks there is Viasat 1’s Patrice Amegashie.
Patrice who until today co-hosted Viasat 1’s This Morning Show resigned from the Station last Friday and will start working as the new head of Programs at TV Africa from today, November 28.
While there, he will also do a few other things aimed at projecting the station as well as see to the business development of TV Africa.
Television Africa Limited, is a private free-on-air television station founded in 1995 by Kwaw Paintsil Ansah, a renowned filmmaker and advertising business executive. The company has its long-term objective ‘to play an effective role in the development of communications as a major instrument for nation building and a vital element in the socio-economic development process.’ One of its core objectives is to transmit high quality programmes on education, development, culture, and current affairs to viewers in Ghana, and later the international market.
The station started test transmission in 2002, and was officially launched by the President of the Republic on 17th of May 2003.
TV Africa is now the newest member of the growing number of subsidiaries of Groupe Ideal, after the holdings company acquired majority stake months ago.
