Bloomberg TV Africa will be broadcasting three separate shows – African Business Weekly, Football Dynamics and African Women To Watch, during February 2014.
African Business Weekly brings you the latest business, financial and economic news from across the continent. Anchors Eleni Giokos, Boason Omofaye, and Uche Okoronkwo interview key African figures with the power to make important business decisions.
As well as bringing you our weekly market update and the latest stories impacting Africa, we hear from heads of state, including the Senegalese President Macky Sall who reveals his country’s ambitious growth targets. We also sit down with leading CEOs from the biggest companies across the continent, such as Egypt’s biggest investment bank EFG Hermes.
And every week, Bloomberg TV Africa (http://www.bloombergtvafrica.com) wants to hear from you, with our special interactive Twitter segment and our Question of the Week.
African Women To Watch, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Special, every Sunday at 7.30pm GMT throughout February 2014.
In our special edition of African Women To Watch airing throughout February, Uche Okoronkwo takes an in-depth look at the life and career of Nigerian Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
In 2012, Dr Okonjo-Iweala became the first African candidate nominated for the World Bank Presidency. She is also credited with spearheading the $18 billion debt write-off from Nigeria’s creditors in 2005.
Now serving a second term as Finance Minister, Dr Okonjo-Iweala offers Bloomberg TV Africa unprecedented insight into her life as one of the world’s most influential women. She opens up about her vision for Nigeria, including a crackdown on oil corruption in 2012 and the launch of the country’s first sovereign wealth fund in 2013.
Each week on Football Dynamics Ayesha Durgahee is joined by former Nigerian international Efan Ekoku to bring us a unique insight into the latest football news. With expert commentary from Dave Farrar and BSports contributor Ben Lyttleton, we preview upcoming matches, the game’s key performers and the latest transfers.
We discuss our African Team of the Week and Efan reveals his African Star, followed by quickfire questions in Ask Efan.
This is the only show that uses its own data to break down the action, with our unique BSports analytics.
“These shows demonstrate an editorial variety that give our advertisers and sponsors the opportunity to appear in a premium business news environment, currently distributed to over 200 million television households across Europe and Africa”, said Rick Plata, International Commercial Director of Bloomberg TV Africa.
