Sanef concerned about journalists losing jobs after AfroWorldView axed

South Africans will know on the 28th of August who will be replacing AfroWorld View previously known as ANN7 on channel 405 on MultiChoice.

MultiChoice pulled the plug on channel following complaints it was pushing propaganda.

Speaking on the Afternoon Drive, Executive Director at the South African National Editors Forum [SANEF] Kate Skinner says they hope whoever wins the bid will give viewers a different voice.

What is going to be interesting is who Multichoice then decides to replace AfroWorld View with.
