Basetsana Kumalo, new editor of Top Billing magazine
"The management and staff of Tswelopele Productions and Publishing wish [Clare] everything of the best for her future endeavours and sincerely thank her for all her hard work and commitment during her tenure. Clare has put together a formidable team and I feel confident that we will raise the magazine to another level and more importantly, continue to meet the needs of our readers," comments Kumalo.
Adds Patience Stevens, MD of Tswelopele and producer of Top Billing, "We hear from our Top Billing viewers and readers directly every day, what they want to see on the show and read about in the magazine.
"With Bassie's television background, we will be able to achieve a fresh energy and dynamism through a tighter synergy between the programme and the magazine. It's an exciting opportunity to tap into the programme content as it happens, bringing a new immediacy to the glossy magazine format."

stop filling (the gaps)-
And the accolades and well-wishing stream in...... Insider info reveals a tsunami-like backwash of staff flowing out in the last 3 months. A spate of resignations resulting in renewal of existing contracts until further notice etc. Doesn't sound healthy. 'Fresh energy and dynamism', – smacks of spin-doctoring. Before one dishes out accolades, remember, she is co-owner of the magazine. Her 'appointment' is indeed well deserved.
