One Africa TV recently announced that its #TodayOnOne weekday bulletin has been extended from 30 minutes to a 60-minute time slot. This was effective from World Press Freedom Day, 3 May.
“Our decision was driven by our relentless pursuit to increase the positive impact we have in Namibia and its communities through trustworthy, independent local content,” Taleni Shimhopileni, content manager and director of One Africa TV, said.
Maggie Forcelledo Paz, the managing producer of #TodayOnOne, added: “This is a milestone for the #TodayOnOne team especially since the launch coincided with World Press Freedom Day.
“We continue to appreciate the fact that we can still - without interference - disseminate factual and relevant information, as Namibia retains her number one position for press freedom in Africa.
“Our Motto is ‘Always There’ and we will continue to be there and keep the nation up to date with the latest current affairs as no Namibian should be left out when it comes to access to information. Keep on watching, it just gets better,” she said.

The new format will include coverage of community stories, current affairs, sports, business and economy, agriculture, education and trending local social media commentary.
One Africa TV produced and broadcasted its first news bulletin on 27 April 2007.
#TodayOnOne, the current format of the weekday news bulletin, has broadcasted more than 941 times since its launch in October 2017.
One Africa TV is available on over 300 000 GOtv (channel 90) and DStv (channel 284) decoders across Namibia. The channel has maintained more than 99% uptime over the past three years.
