LUANDA, January 5, 2009 - The first private television station in Angola was established in Luanda just before Christmas.

TV ZIMBO, and its the studios were inaugurated by Angola’s Minister for the Media.

“Sixty journalists were trained in Portugal- some of them coming also from the Angolan public TV station (TPA) – and now have the commitment to produce information at an international level,” said the director of TV ZIMBO, José Silva Pedro.

The new station will fill the programming with entertainment, but the biggest bet will belong to news time, including sports information.

“TV ZIMBO has began to transmit experimental emissions through Channel 45 (UHF) and Channel 5 (cable Luanda) and will continue to do so until next March. Then, the new TV station will work by open signal for all the country,” announced the director.

The Angolan Executive has made a substantial investment in this area during 2008. New delegations of the national Radio (RNA) have been set up all over Angola, equipped with top technology. For TPA - whose the last production TV centre was inaugurated in Camana by the President Eduardo dos Santos– to modernize it technically is the main task.

The newspaper Jornal de Angola and the National Press Agency ANGOP are also presenting new websites.
