- The owner of Senegalese broadcast stations TFM (Television Futurs Medias) Youssou N'dour will run for President. "I am a candidate. I will engage in the presidential race," N'dour said in a broadcast late on Monday on his own radio and television station. N'dour enjoys huge popularity in Senegal for his music, which helped expose the country's unique 'Mbalax' drumming and singing styles to the mainstream, but it remains unclear if he will be able to translate his fame into votes.

- Domingo Corral has been appointed by Turner Broadcasting System Europe Limited to head up general entertainment content for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
