At 6am tomorrow, viewers of Rwanda Television will watch the first ever morning show on the public broadcaster.
The show, ‘Rise and Shine Rwanda,’ will air Monday to Friday between 6am and 8am.
The two-hour programme will discuss various topical issues, including news, business, sports and lifestyle.
Television and Radio personalities Regis Isheja and Makeda Mahadeo are the main anchors, with Arnold Kwizera, Fidelis Karangwa, and Allan Karakire as presenters for sports, business and lifestyle.
Guest analysts will also join the presenters in the studio to discuss the topics of the day.
According to Dianne Dusaidi, whose company Legacy 45 Entertainment will co-produce the show, all segments of the RTV audience will be catered for.
“There is something for everyone. News headlines will most likely cater to an older audience, while the business segment will cater for those interested in entrepreneurship, and lifestyle is mainly for the youth,” Dusaidi said.

The producers have worked out a formula where all the three national languages will be incorporated one way or another.
Karakire, who will primarily focus on the lifestyle section, said one of the objectives is to deliver programming in a fun and interactive manner.
The show will be posted on YouTube to boost outreach and enable people with tight schedules to watch at their own convenience.
