Africa Channel to soft launch new morning series in Africa, US

The Africa Channel will soft launch a new weekday morning show, Expresso, on July 18. The show, which will be broadcast from Cape Town, South Africa, will be the first series to air live in the African continent and in the US.

While the first episode will feature a tribute to the life of South African leader, Nelson Mandela, the show- which offers lifestyle programming, will officially join the Africa Channel lineup in fall this year. 

“This project involved significant technical hurdles but it will prove to be well worth the effort as Expresso will be a signature show for our network,” said Lee Gaither, general manager and executive vice president of The Africa Channel.
