  • Former Milele FM presenter Eric Kiligo has landed a job at Radio Jambo, a station owned by the Radio Africa Group.

    “Work mode activated. Tuko na Massawe Japanni ndani ya #Bustani hapa Radio Jambo. Tune in,†Kiligo stated.

    At Milele FM, Alibaba hosted two shows; Rumba Oxygen and Reggae Zone.

    The station has now lost three journalists to Radio Africa including; Joyce Gituro and Felix Odiwuor (Jalang’o). Jalang’o made a comeback at Kiss FM just days after he had quit Milele FM.

    “I had differed with the management on my contract offer after Covid-19 affected media business,” Jalang’o stated.

    In June this year, K24 TV, a subsidiary of Mediamax Network Limited fired all its newsroom staff in its broadcaster.

    The former staffers had sued the station’s management declining to take a pay cut that the station was instituting as a cost-cutting measure.

    Several other reporters who were shown the door from Kijabe Street-based station have charted paths in other media organisations.

    Daniel Kariuki, one of the journalists who was dismissed, started a new job at KTN News as a reporter majoring on political stories.

    His previous show at K24 TV was a segment on the station’s morning slot called Lishe Bora that centered around cooking.
