TV Africa to suspend programming except for news due to financial difficulties

- TV Africa was only recently revamped and re-under new ownership

- However, the station has struggled to keep financially afloat.

YEN.com.gh has gathered that TV Africa is suspending programming on-air from Monday September 3, 2018. The TV station which was .only recently rebranded under new management will only air the news for the above-stated date.

According to Starrfmonline.com, the station is currently facing serious financial difficulties. This is because the owner of the business has told senior management members that he is unable to pay workers going forward.

Earlier this month, film director Shirley Frimpong-Manso who was a manager at the station quit due to unpaid salaries. A presenter, Naa Obuobia Darko who was made a deputy general manger also quit a week later, it is reported.

It is further reported that others in various departments of the company have also not been paid. This it is feared will lead to a massive haul of resignations.

The reports indicate that barely six months after her appointment as the Chief Operations Officer of TV Africa, Frimpong Manso left the job with five other senior managers.

A private financial holding company, the Ideal Groupe, bought a majority share in TV Africa two years ago. Before then, the previous management had known modest gains under original founder Kwaw Ansah.
