The station had to close its Cape Town studios after a cameraman passed away from Covid-19-related complications.

Television station e.tv has resorted to doing its live news bulletins from the homes of its presenters after its Cape Town studios had to close.

Last week Cape Town-based eNCA cameraman Lungile Tom passed away due to Covid-19-related complications. This resulted in the company having to quarantine all its Cape Town staff.

The channel’s evening news at 5pm and at 6.30pm are now being filmed from the homes of presenters Naledi Moleo and Annika Larsen.

“We’re doing this with a big team all working from home,” tweeted Larson.

By all accounts, the bulletins went smoothly, but many did notice dogs barking in the background during the live broadcast.
