Enhancements include more broadcasts of the program "Daybreak Africa" paired with "World News Now," a 30-minute news package. "Africa News Tonight" will air feature segments examining developments in science, the environment, lifestyle and culture and business. "Nightline Africa" will include a weekly roundup of African news during its weekend magazine show.
