THE BROADCAST media landscape just got a little bit hotter this year, with NBS TV unveiling their first quarter program line-up which looks set to put the station above its current competition.
Leading the pack is the now very popular and arguably the most watched political and current affairs show on television, “Frontline”. Hosted by seasoned journalist, Charles Odonghto, Frontline is a weekly political show with seasoned analysts and top political honchos – Miria Matembe, Norbert Mao and Ofwono Opondo taking on each other, discussing the weeks trending topics.
In its quest to become the go-to TV station for today’s politically savvy and socially aware Ugandan, NBS has recruited some of the best names in the media world to share their views and analysis in the fields of politics, agri-business and health. These shows will air weekly on various days.
The Kamwokya based media house has brought the media big guns to its programline-up to provide quality and informative entertainment to its viewers through the week. NBS has added political analyst and editor of The Independent magazine Andrew Mwenda; socio-economic and political activist Frank Gashumba; talk-show host Basajja Mivule; newsreader and presenter Samson Kasumba; Capital Gang host Oscar Semweya-Musoke; and radio presenter Rahmah “Lucky” Kanyomozi of Capital FM, to its line-up.
After a brief hiatus from our TV screens, social activist Frank Gashumba makes his comeback on NBS’ The Eagle together with Basajja Mivule, a show giving an in-depth look at the major national developments of the week, with an emphasis on new ideas and innovative solutions to the world’s toughest problems. The controversial Gashumba said “Much of our talk show shall tackle critical areas geared at changing mindsets and creating self belief to ensure that we transform our lives and communities. What Africans urgently need is to believe in themselves no matter which sector they are in. There is absolutely nothing impossible!”
