eNCA and e.tv have decided to cancel Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola. The successful show, which has earned a number of Emmy nominations, will unfortunately not be coming back for a new season.
The channel revealed that the decision to cancel the show comes after months of negotiations. The channel and production company, DiPrente, couldn’t agree on new format changes or the overall commercial terms.
"We have been negotiating with the LNN team since March. We wanted them to explore the option of short format satirical inserts on a more regular basis rather than just a weekly show. Regrettably, they declined to revise the format," said eNCA’s Managing Director Patrick Conroy.
DiPrente said in a statement: "We see great value in the current format and wish to continue to produce a 24-minute satirical news show indefinitely. We are not interested in producing a shorter format show."
