KOFY-TV & VOTAC agree daily news broadcasts of 29 African Capital Markets; to begin in Q2, 2020.

San Francisco, CA (December 3, 2019) – KOFY-TV and VOTAC (Voices of the African Continent) have agreed to broadcasts of ACM TODAY; a weekly financial news and events program, covering the twenty-nine capital markets on the African continent. ACM TODAY is a three-hour program and will be broadcasted Monday through Friday.

ACM TODAY will be available on KOFY-TV’s channel 20, and its corresponding channels on Comcast, DirecTV, Dish and AT&T U-verse, reaching 2.4 million TV homes in the San Francisco Bay Area. ACM TODAY’s livestreams will be available via web browser and app from the Apple, Microsoft and Google online stores.

In Q2 2020, ACM TODAY will begin with financial news and events, covering the capital markets in Nigeria. Nigeria is Africa’s largest economy with a population over 200 million people. In its first year, ACM TODAY will expand its broadcasts to include Africa’s top five economies: Nigeria, South Africa, Egypt, Algeria and Morocco. Based on IMF 2018 figures, these countries represent a combined GDP of 1.3 trillion USD.

ACM TODAY will be produced at VOTAC Studios in San Francisco. The San Francisco team will be supported by multimedia and data journalists in the 38 countries where the 29 capital markets are located. These journalists will provide most of the content featured in live broadcasts. The program will also feature licensed contents from leading news outlets, and interviews by subject matter experts, policymakers and regulators, market operators and participants, customers, and officers of publicly traded companies.

In addition to covering African Capital Markets, ACM TODAY will dedicate thirty minutes during each day’s broadcast to showcase Minority and Women founded technology companies; starting with those in the Bay Area. These early stage companies typically need visibility and access to potential customers, investors, advisors, strategic partners, law firms, tax advisors, wealth managers and other professional service providers.

About KOFY-TV
For over fifty years, KOFY-TV, continues to offer the Bay Area a plethora of programming contents to match the diverse demographics and global awareness within its viewership. Although the station’s call letters has changed over the years, KOFY-TV is no stranger to the independent programming and news broadcast.  From 1972 to 1980, KEMO (now KOFY-TV) aired stock market programming in the mornings (anchored by future CNN and Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney), religious programming in midday, local Spanish programming in the weekday afternoons and evenings, local Italian and imported Japanese programming on Sunday nights.

In 1989, the station rebroadcasted KRON-TV (channel 4)’s newscasts, branded as NewsCenter 4. The KRON-produced 10 p.m. newscast debuted in March 1991 with Pete Wilson and Pam Moore as co-anchors. Years later, KBWB (now KOFY-TV) entered into a news share agreement with ABC owned-and-operated station KGO-TV to produce another primetime newscast. On January 8, 2007, KGO-TV began producing a weeknight-only 9:00 p.m. newscast for channel 20, titled ABC 7 News at 9:00 on Your TV20 (now ABC 7 News at 9:00 on KOFY).

KOFY-TV reaches over 2.4 million TV homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, the 8th ranked market in Nielsen DMA Rankings for 2019.
