Bruce Whitfield brings you Taking Stock on eNCA

Posted on: Thu 28 Sep 2017

eNCA in partnership with Discovery Invest, bring you a new weekly show to tackle issues in the  business, finance and economic environments. Taking Stock is an in-depth interview programme, which blends news-driven topics and off-the-wall thought-provoking issues.

Influential brands, such as Discovery Invest and eNCA, believe it is essential to get the country to take stock of its intractable challenges and to help South Africans make sense of their business landscape. eNCA Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief, Mapi Mhlangu, says, “As part of the expansion of its coverage of business and the economy, eNCA welcomes Bruce Whitfield to its lineup. The popularity of our flagship business show, Moneyline, is an indication that our audience has interest in business content on South Africa as the region's economic hub. Under the stewardship of Business & Economics Editor, Phathiswa Magopeni, and Whitfield, eNCA has every confidence that Taking Stock will charter a new territory in business news coverage during these politically and economically turbulent times”.

Discovery’s ethos is centred on stimulating minds by providing South Africa access to leading thinkers and experts to promote positive behavioural change. Discovery Invest’s sponsorship of this show is a manifestation of this ethos to educate the public on financial matters, with the aim of promoting and encouraging a savings culture as a requisite for long term personal and national financial stability.

Seasoned broadcaster, Whitfield brings wealth of experience to eNCA and the show. He will talk to influential minds in business, policymakers and trailblazers about what informs their decision-making and how they see their roles in tackling the country’s economic challenges in their respective domains. "I cannot wait to take stock with some of South Africa's most powerful voices on money and business on eNCA. It's a great opportunity to really dig into the biggest issues facing South Africa today." says Whitfield.

Join Bruce Whitfield as he brings you Taking Stock from Wednesday 4 October. The episodes premiere on Wednesdays at 5:30PM and will repeat on Thursdays at 1:30PM, Saturdays at 1PM and Sundays at 9:30PM on eNCA on DStv (Channel 403).
