Broadcast News - In Brief


- The SABC board has failed in executing its duties, the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Communications said at its meeting with the broadcaster on October 21, 2010.

- The winners of the prestigious Promax BDA Africa Awards were announced at a function on Friday evening at the Sandton Convention Centre. The Awards recognizes excellence for TV design, on-air imagery and promo production. Already an established international awards ceremony, the event is in its 5th year in South Africa. TopTV walked away with 8 awards, 5 golds and 3 silvers, a huge honour on its own, but given that the new Pay TV service has only been in the market for 6 months, with limited outlets, Elouise Kelly, Chief Marketing Officer for TopTV is very pleased.
