Not the first time Arise had this issue. Previously, someone tweeted out that the staff weren't paid for a period. It's on the previous thread page.

Every time I've tuned in to this channel I've found it to either be airing some awful entertainment news programme with a load of unrecognisable celebrities saying "you're watching Arise News" about 10 times before going into the break, or it's been a live link with one of their reporters being asked endless, inane, boring questions about some African election. It really doesn't cut the mustard.
