CNN Africa’s ‘African Voices’ Extends Partnership With Globacom
Having recently celebrated ten years on CNN International, African Voices is entering a new phase in its quest to profile excellent individuals across Africa with a new host, a new name, a new format and a renewed partnership with its long-term sponsor Globacom.
The experienced Nigerian TV presenter, Arit Okpo, is the show’s new host and will focus on changemakers across the continent.
In addition to broadcasting on CNN International, African Voices Changemakers will also expand its digital footprint through a series of online videos with each of the show’s guests from the show, housed on a dedicated online platform - CNN Digital. There will also be a new item produced exclusively for social media called My Drive, where personalities from the series will share some memorable stories and talk about their life-changing moments.
Zara Driss, the Account Director for CNN International Commercial, said that CNN is thrilled to be increasing the longevity of its collaboration with Globacom. She added that together with Globacom, CNN looks forward to this new journey of African Voices and its digital and TV programming that will raise the profile of the African continent’s changemakers amongst CNN’s international audience.
