Kia Johnson joins SABC2 as new anchor presenter of 5050
SABC2’s long running environmental programme 50/50 returns to the small screen on Monday 8th June 2020 at 7pm, introducing environmental influencer Kia Johnson at the new host.
In its 10th season, 50/50 continues to be the only South African Television show that creates an informative environmental entertainment through cutting-edge programming.
Produced by Clive Morris Productions, 50|50 will exceptionally produce relevant, unique and informative content that empowers the nation on all matters at the heart of our environment. The shows will feel more modern, fresh and accessible to current and new audiences.
In keeping with the ethos of SABC2’s positioning of ‘family values’, 50/50 aims to produce stories that all South African’s can relate to, encouraging families to make positive contributions towards nature conservation and protecting the wildlife.
The threat of climate change, the extinction of land and ocean species, waste management, reckless mining and abuse of our water systems, is a constant reminder of why a credible show such as 50|50 is important as it can make a difference in our society.
