Chris Maroleng Leaves eNCA

eNCA (DStv 403) loses more talent as the second high-ranking on-air talent who has been with the 24-hour TV news channel for six years, Chris Maroleng, is now leaving the channel to pursue other interests. 

This latest resignation comes just a week following eNCA's chief meteorologist Derek van Dam who is leaving eNCA after six years.

In a statement the channel says;
eNCA (DStv Channel 403) regrettably announces the resignation of Africa Editor, Chris Maroleng after six years with the broadcaster. Maroleng is leaving the channel in order to pursue a career in the corporate sector in South Africa. His last day with the channel will be on 12 July, 2014. 
Chris was already a well-regarded Africa specialist with the Institute for Security Studies when he joined the channel 6 years ago. He led the team which started eNews Africa in 2009 and has built up a Africa division,  which has done excellent work bringing stories of our continent to South Africans, viewers across Africa and further afield. 
Chris and the Africa team have built eNCA into a credible and well-respected source of Africa news. He was also instrumental in the setting up of news bureaus in Nairobi and Lagos. 
In addition, Chris’s show, Africa 360 has had a long-run and has built up a loyal audience on eNCA. 
Ben Said, Group News Editor said, “eNCA can confirm that Chris Maroleng has resigned. The good work done by Chris and his team will continue. eNCA remains committed to bringing credible and balanced news from around the African continent. He will be greatly missed for his knowledge and expertise”.
eNCA wish him well in his new endeavour.
The man who became famous after his fiery interview on which he uttered the now equally famous phrase - "Don't touch me in my studio" - is reported to be leaving television for the corporate world.
