ANN7 job ad

ANN7 is, according to ANN7:

Africa’s newest English Language, world class television news channel

And, according to everyone else, an absolute joke.

What they need is to just give up copy editors, and that’s probably why they’ve advertised on for just that:


With its “improving the language” and “ensuring that anchor feed flows seamlessly in a bulletin”, it seems to address many of the issues we’ve already seen on ANN7.

Perhaps this could be the job for you, if you, like me, are a strictler for facts.

Whatever one of those is.

    Thay obvously need a persen who can spel really proprly as a lot of people canot.

  • As an HR professional this makes me twitch. So wrong, in so many ways.

  • Tania > The irony is almost overwhelming.

    Mac > Their rolling ticker has also been a source of great amusement.

  • I reckon a ‘strictler’ must be a sex toy. Some sort of dominatrix tickling device. No? No.

    *Hangs head in despair at the whole thing*

  • jadetaylorcook > I hadn’t thought about it as a sex toy. Interestingly, checking around online, it appears that neither has anyone else.
