Lots of TV news today it seems...

Actor/comedian and Daily Show correspondent Wyatt Cenac will host season four of AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange Documentary series, which premieres nationally on Public TV’s World Channel on Sunday, January 22, at 9 PM.

Details in the press release below:

NEW YORK (January 3, 2012)—Wyatt Cenac, celebrated comic and correspondent for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, steps into a new role this January as host of the fourth season of AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange. The funnyman will present AfroPoP, a series that shines a light on stories from diverse corners of the African Diaspora, as it returns to the public television channel WORLD on Sunday, January 22, at 9 pm (ET & PT). AfroPoP is produced by the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) and distributed by American Public Television (APT).

Cenac, known for his humorous and insightful stories on The Daily Show, will introduce viewers to the exciting independent films that comprise this season of AfroPoP.

This year AfroPoP invites audiences to walk on the road less traveled and witness the stories of men and women whose life journeys have taken them on unique and unexpected paths. Episodes include Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone, a film narrated by Laurence Fishburne that tells the tale of black inner-city youth in Los Angeles who became leaders of a punk rock music revolution (Sunday, January 22); Burning in the Sun, an inspirational portrait of a 26-year-old’s efforts to combine entrepreneurship and solar energy in Africa (Sunday, January 29); That’s My Face, the story of one New Yorker’s quest for self-discovery in Brazil (Sunday, February 5); and Calypso Rose: Lioness of the Jungle, the tale of beloved singer Calypso Rose, a minister’s daughter who became a pioneer of calypso music (Sunday, February 12).

“AfroPoP is a wonderful example of the unique ability of television to entertain and enlighten a large number of people, and I’m glad to be a part of that,” said Cenac.

AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange will air on WORLD, the 24-hour public television documentary channel.
