Two Shows cancelled for Moroccan State TV Channel

As a financial crisis continues to severely hit the Moroccan TV channel 2M, the state-owned media company pulled up its fallen turnover rate by ceasing the broadcast of two of its flagship programs.
Considered too expensive, the second national channel decided to revoke the 10-year-old program “Massar,” presented by Atik Benchiguer, in which he traces the paths of and pays tribute to prominent figures in different fields.
The program “Nghanniwha Maghribia” (“Let’s Sing it Moroccan”) was also the target of this purge, given that all the singers and musicians invited were expensive which have helped sink the channel’s bank account into a dreadful financial crisis over the past few months.
The new policy of the second channel will be to produce programs with the lowest possible costs. Priority will be given to less expensive programs, such as “Kif Kounti ou Kif Oulliti” (“How You Were and How You Became”) by Hicham Mesrar. Same goes for “Rachid Show,” presented by Rachid Allali, who has a myriad of sponsors, even though he was called by the channel to invite only national or international celebrities passing through Rabat or Casablanca, where the company’s headquarter is located, to avoid paying for their transportation.
