Loyiso Gola and eNCA’s news parody show, Late Nite News, has been nominated for an International Emmy award in the comedy category by the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
“Late Nite News has become part of our national conversation. It has taught us to laugh at ourselves and see the truth through humour. I see LNN as an extension of our news service at eNCA and value the hard work and dedication from Loyiso Gola, Kagiso Lediga, Tamsin Andersson and the rest of the team.” said Parick Conroy, eNCA group head of news.
“It’s a great feeling to have this recognition,” says Tamsin Andersson, producer of LNN. ” The LNN team has worked tirelessly and passionately on the show from the beginning and it is humbling and very exciting that the Emmy’s have given us a nod. Thank you to eNCA and e.tv for all the support.”
In a statement released in Cannes, President & CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Bruce L. Paisner said, “Every year, the global television community competes for an Emmy, the most prestigious of all media awards, and we congratulate the 2013 Nominees for their outstanding programs and performances.”
