Watching eNCA has become like shopping at a pop-up store - one day you know what you're getting and the next you don't.

The channel's going through yet another overhaul this Monday (29 July 2019), with new segments, anchor switches and a new look. 

This is what to expect:
Time Show title What's on
06h00 - 07h00 First Take with Xoli Mngambi Covers overnight news and a look forward to the day’s big stories.
07h00 - 08h00 The South African Morning with Xoli Mngambi and Jane Dutton An in-depth look at the day’s top stories, including interviews and live crossings to the big stories of the morning.
08h00 - 09h00 The Jane Dutton Hour Blends hard news and lifestyle interviews with Jane anchoring from the field on occasion.
09h00 - 11h00 Today with Dan Moyane Reporter crossings, live news events and analysis.
11h00 - 
The Rundown with Michelle Craig Express mid-point daily updates, including a dedicated business segment.
13h00 - 
Live at Lunchtime with Jeremy Maggs (editor-in-chief of eNCA) Express mid-point daily updates, including a dedicated business segment.
14h00 - 16h00 Upfront with Marcelle Gordon No info. available.
16h00 - 
News hour with Faith Mangope A wrap of the day’s biggest stories. 
17h00 - 18h00 The Lead with Shahan Ramkissoon A consolidated and rapid-fire news bulletin. 
18h00 - 20h00 South Africa Tonight with Uveka Rangappa (Uveka moves from mornings) High profile interviews and making sense of the day’s big events.(Presuming it's possible, which it usually isn't.)
20h00 - 22h00 eNCA Nightline with Vuyo Mvoko A recap of the news, panel discussions and longer interviews.

Important to note:

Jane Dutton was already looking exhausted in the evenings so we have no clue how she'll get up for early mornings.

The weather bulletins remain as they are, at the top of each hour.

These times are relevant for Mondays to Fridays.

eNCA irks me and it's sad 'cause it was my preferred choice for news.

What they need is consistency and not this constant trial and error and moving around of anchors. They also need to cover more news and stop running with the same news cycle from 06h00-22h00 (take a leaf out of SABC and Newzroom Afrika)

With that said, where is Duduzile Ramela? I heard nothing about her exit and she would've been good on mornings. I'm sorry, but Jane should NOT be reading news or updating us on anything, she's a drag. 

If anything, Xoli should've been paired with Michelle, they've got great on-screen chemistry which would've been great for the morning show 06h00-09h00

Dan 09h00-12h00

Jeremy should just be editor-in-chief and host Maggs on Media, leave anchoring 

Marcelle could do a lunch update from 12h00-13h00

Shahan and Faith on Lunch would've been better 13h00-16h00

And Uveka on late afternoon 16h00-

But...oh well
