Radio Ndarason 12050 AM 2036 UTC 16 Jan 2019

I heard Radio Ndarason via Ascension with African music after talking by a female announcer in presumed Kanuri. The announcer talked briefly between songs until 2047 UTC, when a male announcer gave what sounded like the news until signoff at 2059 UTC. Unlike the earlier part of the broadcast, the news seemed to be in French?

The signal was unusually good, with some fading but not much noise.

The big mystery, though, is this: Has WEWN/ETWN stopped using this frequency for its daily Spanish broadcast? That signal is nowhere to be found in recent days, including again today (the 17th) when I checked.
