 Heart FM makes a change to its mid-morning show that’s certain to be well received. The station is moving one of Cape Town’s most well-liked presenters, Irma G, into the 9 am to 12 noon show. Irma is no stranger to radio and the station believes she’ll bring her passion and flair for music alive in this time slot. The workplace soundtrack now changes a gear and picks up the pace with Irma G in the driving seat.

 

Head of Programming, Denver Apollus says “ Irma G is a household name in the radio game, and I’m confident she’ll bring a fresh new approach to the 6 to 6 line-up. She’s one of the most versatile radio presenters in the industry and I’m so happy she’ll now have her own daytime slot.”

 

“I fell in love with radio many years ago, and have loved entertaining and talking to people from all walks of life! I am honoured to have had a career that’s  spanned over 22 years – and this opportunity to host the 9 to 12 space excites me! I’m looking forward to sharing my love for music, which is pure; music drives me beyond bad moods and exhaustion, it fuels me! And I hope to bring that drive and passion and share it in my 9 to 12 show.” Says Irma G.

 

 

Some of the other voices who feature on the station are the likes of the experienced producers – Grant Jansen and Duncan Patrick – and new recruit, Kelly Pearce.

 

Pearce is one of a few new radio voices to have been recruited by Heart FM recently – and Apollus says this fresh talent will be given their own space to develop as well.

Mon to Fri

04:00 – 06:00      Kabelo Shomang

Fri & Sat

04:00 – 06:00      Lesley Piet

Apollus also mentions a few other changes will be  implemented in the coming weeks.

Heart FM enjoys a dominant position in the radio landscape in the Western Cape, and a refreshed, well-timed  talent line up should see the station retain that mass appeal.

 

 

Heart FM Managing Director Renee Redelinghuys says “Irma has always been a loyal and committed presenter, and affording her this opportunity makes sense. She has the potential to elevate the show and bring a uniqueness for this time of the day”

 

 

The Mon to Fri Line-Up 

06:00 – 09:00      Heart Breakfast with Aden Thomas, Tapfuma Makina, Julian Naidoo, Deon Bing, Darren Green & Jenny Morris

09:00 – 12:00      Irma G

The award which aims to acknowledge the very best of business journalism, comes in recognition of the network’s efforts to highlight the narrative of Africa’s growth and the opportunities present in the continent
 

On 01 May 2018, the Lagos Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI) presented CNBC Africa (www.CNBCAfrica.com) the 2018 Award for “Best Business Television”, in Victoria Island, Lagos. The award which aims to acknowledge the very best of business journalism, comes in recognition of the network’s efforts to highlight the narrative of Africa’s growth and the opportunities present in the continent. According the Director of Advocacy & Research, LCCI, Dr. Vincent Nwani, “the objective of the annual awards is to recognise, celebrate and promote private and public institutions that have exhibited the core values of best business practices, growth through innovations, business sustainability and have positively impacted the society. This award is the outcome of a painstaking selection process from numerous entries received for this award category and backed by feedback from industry/market intelligence”.

 

 

The distinct blend of PAN African and International content, and keen focus on economic news led CNBC Africa to emerge as the undisputed winner of this award. CNBC Africa commenced its African  journey in 2007- and has since then, grown to be a dependable network for actionable business and financial information. The detailed coverage provided by the channel across markets and sectors, makes it a reliable source of information to the African business community. With a viewership crossing 23 million households on DSTV, Startimes Nigeria, Canal Plus and Kwese TV, across 48 African countries- CNBC Africa bridges the gap between CEO’s, entrepreneurs, government, the business community and the average man. The channel has state-of-the-art infrastructure and studios in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Kigali and Johannesburg, and imbibes a PAN African spirit unique to itself.

 

 

Mr. Frederic Vandevyver, Executive Director for West Africa, collected the award on behalf of CNBC Africa and expressed his gratitude for the honour. Mr Vandevyver noted that CNBC Africa remains committed to creating value and empowering people by accurately and passionately telling Africa’s business story first; He stated, “To get an award in Lagos, which in my opinion is one of the most vibrant economic and business cities in Africa means a lot. I want to dedicate this award to the team working here in West Africa. They work 24 hours, 7 days a week to ensure that we cover all the business news in the best way possible. This award goes to them.”

 

 

The network aims to be Africa’s business channel of choice across the continent – focused on aggressively growing its viewership by making the channel more accessible to the average African, this award does provide more momentum and encouragement to channel to achieve its dream.

GfK launches its annual ViewScape study in Africa, showing how the rise of digital platforms is transforming consumers’ viewing habits.

Some 20% of South Africans who sign up for a subscription video on demand (SVOD) service such as Netflix or Showmax do so with the intention of cancelling their pay television subscription. That’s according to GfK’s international ViewScape survey*, which this year covers Africa (South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria) for the first time.

 

The study-which surveyed 1,250 people representative of urban South African adults with Internet access-shows that 90% of the country’s online adults today use at least one online video service and that just over half are paying to view digital online content. The average user spends around 7 hours and two minutes a day consuming video content, with broadcast television accounting for just 42% of the time South Africans spend in front of a screen.

 

Consumers in South Africa spend nearly as much of their daily viewing time – 39% of the total – watching free digital video sources such as YouTube and Facebook as they do on linear television. People aged 18 to 24 years spend more than eight hours a day watching video content as they tend to spend more time with free digital video than people above their age.

 

Says Benjamin Ballensiefen, managing director for Sub Sahara Africa at GfK: “The media industry is experiencing a revolution as digital platforms transform viewers’ video consumption behaviour. The GfK ViewScape study is one of the first to not only examine broadcast television consumption in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa, but also to quantify how linear and online forms of content distribution fit together in the dynamic world of video consumption.”

 

The study finds that just over a third of South African adults are using streaming video on demand (SVOD) services, with only 16% of SVOD users subscribing to multiple services. Around 23% use per-pay-view platforms such as DSTV Box Office, while about 10% download pirated content from the Internet. Around 82% still sometimes watch content on disc-based media.

 

“Linear and non-linear television both play significant roles in South Africa’s video landscape, though disruption from digital players poses a growing threat to the incumbents,” says Molemo Moahloli, general manager for media research & regional business development at GfK Sub Sahara Africa. “Among most demographics, usage of paid online content is incremental to consumption of linear television, but there are signs that younger consumers are beginning to substitute SVOD for pay-television subscriptions.”

 

 

*GfK’s annual ViewScape study is run in 19 countries: Australia, Brazil, Belgium, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Netherlands, Nigeria, Mexico, Poland, Singapore, South African, Spain, Sweden, UK, US. Full country reports are available for purchase.

Orange (www.Orange.comand Vivendi (www.Vivendi.com)  have joined forces to meet the expectations of the fast-growing African continent, keen to consume cultural goods and rediscovering, after three decades in which cinemas had all but disappeared, the unique experience of the big screen in the best technical conditions and absolute comfort.

 

CanalOlympia is the leading network of cinemas and performance venues deployed by Vivendi in central and Western Africa, with 8 cinemas open to date, twenty by the end of 2018 and several dozen in the next few years. Every week, several thousand spectators visit each of the cinemas, all equipped with a cutting-edge projection and sound system.

 

As part of this partnership, Orange will offer its “Cinédays” programme in all the CanalOlympia cinemas where Orange is present, i.e. 8 African countries and a dozen multi-purpose cinema and performance venues. Cinédays was launched in the UK in 2004. Today, it is available in Romania, Luxembourg, France, Belgium and Morocco. It enables Orange customers to benefit from a 2 for 1 cinema ticket offer once or twice a week, to invite a person of their choice to share an enjoyable moment at the cinema together.

 

 

The offer will initially be launched in Cameroon, quickly followed by Senegal, Burkina Faso, Guinea Conakry, and Niger, then Mali, Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of the Congo as the CanalOlympia network is deployed.

 

The CanalOlympia cinemas offer a varied programme including French films, films from different African countries, American blockbusters and productions specifically aimed at young people. Orange Studio may contribute to the programming with new co-productions as well as its extensive catalogue of European and African films.

 

Orange will provide its expertise and know-how to ensure the best connectivity and to improve the digital distribution of films in the various CanalOlympia cinemas.

 

Orange’s contribution to this ambitious project will also include the integration of Orange Money, its flagship mobile-based money transfer and financial services offer, now available in 17 countries with over 37 million customers. For the first time, you will be able to pay directly at the cinema using your mobile thanks to the digital tills.

The Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) is a membership-based organisation that administers the performing right in musical works on behalf of its composer and publisher members.

 

SAMRO plays a key role in the music ecosystem of South Africa and regularly engages with other players in this ecosystem, including its members, other copyright management organisations, and users of music, the recording industry, as well as policy and lawmakers.

 

 

Following the presentation of the new SAMRO strategy at the AGM of November 2017, which focusses on member-centricity, operational and governance efficiency and policy review, the membership at that meeting gave SAMRO the mandate to engage in a full policy and systems review.

 

 

This review has included various engagements with members, included Roundtable meetings in Johannesburg, Capetown and Durban, and has included assessments of the rules governing membership, distribution and directorship at SAMRO.

 

 

Also under review have been the distribution rules governing the calculation of royalties earned for the arrangement of gospel and traditional music that is in the public domain (so called “DP” works). A musical work is classified as “DP” by SAMRO when it does not enjoy copyright protection and is in the public domain (domaine publique, DP). Contrary to various media reports, DP is not person but a system identifier to classify works that are in the public domain.

 

 

In an article published on 1 April 2018, it was alleged by the media that SAMRO is involved in the unlawful deduction of royalties pertaining to re-arrangements of music that is in the public domain (i.e. not copyright-protected). SAMRO stands by its rejection of the allegation that it has acted unlawfully and views the statements as deeply false and misleading.

 

We acknowledge that the treatment of arrangements of public domain works requires attention by ourselves as a membership-based organisation and the Government of South Africa, from a copyright policy and socio-economic perspective.

 

This arrangement rule currently recognises a capped 16.7% copyright royalty share for the portion of the work that the arranger created on the back of the original public domain work.  This percentage is allocated to the person who arranges the DP work. The balance of 83.3% of the royalty share that would have accrued to the rest of the arrangement had the DP portion been in copyright is held back and distributed to all the active musical works belonging to SAMRO members in proportion to the use of their music during the period under review.

 

 

The idea behind this rule is that it would not be equitable for the re-arranger of the music to benefit from 100% of the royalties because he/she has used someone else’s music as a base and has only contributed to a portion of the new arrangement. Royalties are neither collectable or payable for out-of-copyright/public domain works. As such, SAMRO’s licensing arrangements are limited to the copyright-protected musical works of its members.

 

 

SAMRO accepts that this rule, although not unlawful, is ripe for review by the membership to have a more favourable impact on the arranger who decides to “revive” a traditional song that has now fallen outside copyright. The members of SAMRO, during the roundtable consultations, have engaged favourably on this matter and it has been agreed that the percentage payable should be increased from the current 16.7%. It should be noted that the 16.7% level is benchmarked internationally with most similar organisations pegging the percentage between 12.5%-25%.

 

 

Other important matters discussed at the roundtables were:

  • the simplification of membership categories,

  • understanding membership criteria,

  • streamlining of member benefits,

  • the introduction of more independent directors on the board,

  • inadequate music usage reporting by users of music,

  • the Copyright Amendment Bill currently under review,

  • SAMRO’s commitment to transformation,

  • the link between local content music quotas on broadcasters and higher local royalty distributions, and

  • the need for increased member engagement to ensure an increased understanding of how SAMRO operates and its role in the larger music ecosystem.

 

 

It is unfortunate to note that at the Johannesburg roundtable meeting that took place on Monday 23 April 2018, a group of non-SAMRO members forced their way into what was a members-only meeting. It is believed the lack of understanding of the role SAMRO plays in the music industry was the cause of the numerous non-member musicians demanding entry into the meeting. SAMRO is in fact an administrator of active copyright music used by licensees, but is largely and wrongly viewed as the central body responsible for policy and socio-economic issues in the music industry. SAMRO accepts it has a contribution to make in this regard, but it is important to note that SAMRO’s mandate remains limited to its members and to matters of copyright, and specifically the public performance right, in compositions. This means that matters relating to recording contracts, unfair practices between musicians in general as well as any other artist royalties and revenues are excluded from SAMRO’s mandate.

 

 

The executive team at SAMRO is now collating all member inputs and encourages any more submissions to be sent to marketing@samro.org.za.

 

 

The submissions and recommendations will be presented to the membership of SAMRO at an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) in June 2018, where it is hoped that new rules will be adopted that reflect the member’s will and best interests.

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has published its findings in respect of a process to review the framework governing the community broadcasting services sector. This publication of the findings document has also culminated into the draft regulations for the review of the community broadcasting services sector.

ICASA is therefore calling on all interested stakeholders, civic organisations and the public at large to participate and make their written submissions on the draft regulations in order to assist the Authority to come up with an informed regulation put together in the public interest.

 

The review of the community broadcasting framework will address known and unknown shortcomings in the regulatory and operational environment of the community broadcasting services sector. The envisaged outcomes of the review include, but not limited to, streamlining the community broadcasting related regulations, a review of the community broadcasting licensing framework, as well as operational guidelines for the community broadcasting services sector.

 

ICASA will be conducting workshops in different areas across nine (9) provinces to solicit input on the Draft Regulations. The workshops will kick off from 15 May 2018 to 06 June 2018 and the schedule for the workshops will be published in due course.

 

“The community broadcasting sector continues to experience challenges relating to, among others, governance, mismanagement or lack of proper management and lack of business ethos. This process is an important intervention on the part of ICASA to ensure the smooth-running of the sector and to bring the necessary changes that will see the sector being regulated in the public and community interest,” says Councillor Botlenyana Mokhele.

 

Mokhele further encouraged full participation in the regulation-making process so that all matters of concern for the sector can be fully addressed. “It would be great to see submissions from the members of the sector and attendance in the upcoming workshops in particular because they will have to comply with the final regulations when they come into effect. This is therefore an opportunity for them to raise any issues they feel ICASA must address to make the sector work better and for the communities they are licensed for,” conclude Mokhele.

The findings document and the draft regulations are available on the ICASA website.

eTV to air award winning Winnie documentary

Posted by radio On April - 10 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

eMedia is proud to bring Pascale Lamche’s award-winning documentary Winnie to the small screen this week.

This illuminating work brings fresh perspective and insight into the life of the anti-apartheid activist and human rights advocate Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

 

The documentary won a Sundance Award in 2017.

 

 

Winnie explores Mandikizela-Mandela’s contribution to the struggle against apartheid from inside the country and includes interviews with Madikizela-Mandela herself, those who were closest to her, and those who sought to extinguish her radical capacity to shake up the order of things.

 

 

 

“With acquisition of the rights to Winnie, the eMedia Group is proud to contribute to the collective understanding of our history, as we continue to do every day in our various media properties,”  says eMedia Holdings CEO says Andre van der Veen.

“We are particularly excited to be able to offer this award-winning production to our OpenView viewers as part of our commitment to bringing high-quality content to our free-to-air satellite platform. We have also made a library of our key Winnie Mandela interviews and stories available on our YouTube channel so that our viewers are able to watch these enlightening interviews at their convenience.”

 

Mapi Mhlangu, MD and editor-in-chief of eNCA says:”In South Africa we have lived through turbulent times, and coming to terms with that history is often difficult. The passage of time often distorts as much as it allows for better insight into the past.  Making sense of that past remains absolutely key to imagining a better future, though. In that spirit we hope that this documentary will help many South Africans confirm what they already know, gain new insight into what they have long believed about our collective history, but also, to help inform how we remember someone as important to our history as Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela Mandela.

 

 

“The life of this singular woman is indeed humbling, and holds many lessons for those of us who have benefited from her work over her long life,” says Mhlangu.

 

Marlon Davids, e.tv’s head of channels, says: “We look forward to scheduling Winnieon e.tv and on Openview to enable South Africans to see this excellent film in their numbers.”

 

 

Lamche’s account of the political life of Madikizela-Mandela includes fascinating archival footage, extensive interviews with her, her daughter Zindzi, and those who sought her downfall. Though firmly on the side of Winnie, this film nonetheless offers a unique perspective of recent South African history. In the process, it restores Madikizela-Mandela as a key figure in the liberation of South Africa.

 

 

The documentary will premiere on eNCA on Wednesday, 11 April, at 9pm, after which it will broadcast to all South Africans on e.tv and OpenView.
