CNN International revamps Africa shows

CNN International plans to revamp two of its major Africa-focused shows, CNN Marketplace Africa and African Voices, in an attempt to cover the continent’s trends, culture and personalities.

African Voices, CNN’s 30-minute weekly show, will be changing from May 22 will focus on uncovering some of the continent’s most dazzling trendsetters, creating their own subcultures in areas such as travel, fashion, art, music, technology and architecture.

From May 8, CNN Marketplace Africa will report on the changing industries and sectors, and get answers from the leading CEOs and entrepreneurs at the top, on and off the continent. Both shows will have a new look and feel with new graphics, but they will retain their same established weekly slots on CNN International.
