Current affairs on – it’s a laugh

25 and the eNews Channel will launch the Late Nite News, a satirical show that puts a completely different spin on current affairs and breaking news on 29 September. It will be hosted by Loyiso Gola known for his no-holds-barred comedy.

True journalism relies on facts and verified information but Late Nite News or LNN, will rely purely on speculation and most times, absurd hearsay. Late Nite News has a particular formal look about it and features some of South Africa’s most exciting comedians as “field-reporters”, such as Riaad Moosa and Jason Cope.

The show will follow a very professional structure, set in a formal news studio, the latest news is interspersed with non-stop tongue-in-cheek one-liners offering viewers a hilarious take on some current political and international stories.

Each episode will be ended off with a “Morale Index”, narrated by the show’s host. Using an animated graphic interface, this segment measures the country’s milestones and failures in the week using a graph diagram.

The show is produced by Diprente Productions.
