You all know the sequence of a typical Friday night. Dinner, Dishes, Sofa, Snacks and Xarabank. You all have sat with family and friends watching the programme, oftentimes with the discussion moving to your own living room.
That is all about to change as from next Autumn’s new TV Schedule. Peppi Azzopardi, the brains behind Xarabank and the show’s host announced on Facebook that PBS did not renew the popular discussion programme.
“I confirm that PBS have stopped Xarabank from airing on the National TV Station. According to the latest BA Survey, Xarabank remained the most followed TV programme on the National TV Station, above other stations, above all the other programmes, in any time window,” Mr Azzopardi said in the post.
“Xarabank was never found guilty of imbalance, it has raised millions of euros for charity, it has received numerous awards for investigative journalism and as a discussion programme. I would like to thank the hundreds of team members who played a part, and those thousands who were part of our panels, and all the thousands who followed the show in the last 23 years and made it the most popular discussion programme in the history of Malta,” he concluded.
