BETWEEN HOURS: Asaase Radio Recruit Naa Ashorkor For Its Mid Afternoon Show

Published

on

Though speculations were rife about Naa Ashorkor joining Asaase Radio a fortnight ago after its launch, Graphic Showbiz can confirm that the Perfect Picture actress will host the mid-afternoon show dubbed, “Between Hours” from today [Monday – June 29, 2020].

Ashorkor’s new role comes a few weeks after she publicly announced her contract termination at the Multimedia Group Limited (MGL) where she hosted the ‘Strong and Sassy’ and ‘Rhythmz A-Z’ radio programmes on Joy FM.

Confirming her new role to the Graphic Showbiz on Monday, the mother of two said she was happy to be back on air and doing what she loved to do most in her life.

“I have come to accept that God always has bigger plans for us and that was why I publicly announced it when my contract was terminated at Multimedia. I believe that my new job is another chance from God to positively use my talent to influence the society,” she said.

‘Between Hours’ is a music radio show interspersed with live listener interactions, games, sing-along sessions and according to her it is meant to put the target audiences at ease whilst ensuring they are prepped up for the rest of the day’s work.

Apart from hosting “Between Hours’ which will be a daily programme, the mother of two will also be the presenter for “Just Us,” an all-girls talk show every Wednesday. Naa Ashorkor’s journey in media can best be described as interesting after starting off as a “Vox Pop” co-ordinator for TV Africa whilst still a student at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ).

Gradually, she got acquainted with the crew who invited her as guest on the “New Generation” show and gradually, found her way as the presenter for the programme when the host got sick.

Ashorkor later started hosting the television programme “Tales from The Powder room” on Gh One and mentioned she loves to talk about issues affecting women and being the new host of “Just Us” was just another chance of fulfilling that ambition. She also worked at Starr FM before joining Multimedia.

THE CROWN: Netflix’s Biggest Shows Set Wrap Up After Its Fifth Season

Published

on

Earlier this year, it emerged that The Crown, one of Netflix’s biggest shows, would wrap up after its fifth season. But it has reversed course, as it’s returning to creator and writer Peter Morgan’s initial concept of a six-season run for the Royal Family drama.

“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” Morgan told Variety in a statement. “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”

By the time it ends, The Crown will cover Queen Elizabeth II’s life up to the early 2000s. So, it won’t touch on more recent events, such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure from the Royal Family.

Filming on season four wrapped up just before the onset of COVID-19 lockdowns in the UK. That season is expected to hit Netflix later in 2020, a year or so after season three premiered. It’ll bring an end to Oscar-winner Olivia Colman’s two-season stint as Queen Elizabeth II, as Imelda Staunton is taking over the role for the final two seasons.
