The Cameroon Radio Television, CRTV has launched two new radio programmes on the national station to replace the present talk shows MORNING SAFARI and its equivalence in French CRTV M’ ACCOMPAGNE. The two new programmes DAY BREAK that replaces Morning Safari will run from 4:30 a.m. to 6 a.m. while LA MATINEE DE LA CRTV will run from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. as from Monday September 19, 2016. According to the Central Director for Radio, Alain Belibi, both programmes that are news oriented will have a presenter each.
As part of the innovation, several topics will be handled on the programmes daily instead of just one while experts in several fields will be invited every day. The changes have sent some wrong signals to the Anglophone community as Morning Safari broadcast from Monday to Thursday from 5 a.m. to 6 30 a.m. has been rated by many as CRTV‘s most popular English Language radio talk show.
The program handled topics of national interest in the domains of politics health, culture, economy, commerce, technology, education and religions amongst others. On Television the TV breakfast show HELLO has been baptised HELLO CAMEROON and BONJOUR, BONJOUR LE CAMEROUN.
The change comes in line with new management’s intent to move closer to its audiences through many more news oriented programmes.
