5 December 2004 No Comment

If you want the latest in entertainment news as well as information on the coolest stuff happening in SA street culture then make a date with Street Journal on SABC 1 Ya Mampela every Monday at 18:30 as of the 6th of December.

This is going to be your source of the latest news and gossip about your favourite stars as well as the place to get info on the coolest trends in fashion, media and music.

Says show producer Kutloano Skosana ?Street Journal is the definitive guide to local entertainment and urban culture. It?s an entertainment news driven show. It?s urban current affairs (direct from the street) with a touch of glamour. We cover entertainment news (music, fashion, media, lifestyle, art, dance, events, sports etc.) like any normal news or current affairs show. However, because this is entertainment there?s room not to be so serious, to add a touch of humour and also be experimental.?

The idea behind Street Journal was to create a TV version of South Africa?s premiere urban culture website hhtp://www.rage.co.za that was created by Jozi Based company Black Rage Productions who are also producing Street Journal. Every episode of this show will be filmed at the hottest, most happening and visually appealing locations around the country: fashion outlets, restaurants, bars, celebrity homes, studios and other hangouts. The shows guests will be local and international visiting celebrities and our opinions will come directly from the street ? either through vox pops or email and other interactive media.

The team creating this show truly represents:

21 year-old Mathoto Matsetela makes her presenting debut after having appeared in Yizo Yizo 3 (she played Nomsa?s bulimic campus room mate) and an episode of Soul City. She beat a talented group of people (including her older sister!) to get this job and she?s excited to be part of ?An innovative, honest, researched, reliable chronicle of our blessed land. Expect music, fashion, media, art, theatre, dance and all sorts of cultural movements to be covered. There is a electrifying optimism flowing through peeps of SA, I feel it and Street Journal will showcase it.? She?s more than a pretty face and acting talent, she works closely with the rage crew thinking of content ideas and researching and writing her own scrips.

Street Journal is created by Black Rage Productions, who better to produce a show about urban culture than the company that created leading urban culture website http://www.rage.co.za and started Outrageous Records home of hip hop stars Zubz and H20.

The show is directed by 25 year old AFDA graduate Tarryn Crossman who has a young, connected crew working with her. She promises that Street Journal is going to look unlike any other TV show dealing with SA culture ?Street Journal is also humorous and witty in its graphics and use of music videos, photographs, illustrations/caricatures and archive footage. In other words, you get plenty of information with out a single yawn between pauses.?

Expect ?hard-hitting in its coverage of entertainment news and you can trust the information you get from the Street Journal. Truth is the foundation of the show. No story that appears on Street Journal will be based on rumours or allegations. All information will be verified with the people accused and or involved.? Says Skosana

Imagine Brothers of Peace being interviewed their new album whilst learning water sports, have you heard the Stoned Cherrie and Craig Native are available at Woolworths? You can also find out about a funky local underwear range too. There?s that and much more on the first edition of the show, of course you can expect that was well as the juiciest entertainment news and gossip? Then be sure to tune into the first episode of Street Journal.

Black Rage Productions? TV credits include SABC 1?s 2001 cutting edge music show Bassiq, Kwaito Generals a SABC 1 documentary about kwaito pioneers Arthur, Oskido and Mdu last year as well as scriptwriting for Channel O for many years and producing On The Street about urban culture in 5 African cities in 2000 for that channel.

So make sure to diarise this date in your Street Journal : 6 December 6:30 pm SABC 1 Ya Mampela.
