  • Former Classic 105 presenter Tina Kaggia left fans excited after returning to radio on Monday, September 7.

    After more than a year away from the airwaves, Kaggia was unveiled as the host of The Morning Fix, the morning show on Nation Media Group (NMG)-owned Nation FM.

    Kaggia had joined sports betting firm SportPesa until the company ceased operations in Kenya in 2019 citing a punitive tax regime. She also launched her own content venture Nyumbani Radio and has been busy publishing video podcasts during the Covid-19 period.

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke on Monday, September 7, Kaggia couldn't hide her excitement stating that she was happy to be back on radio.

    "It felt good (to be back). I'm still in love with radio," she stated.

    Her new interactive morning show will broadcast on weekday mornings from 6 a.m.

    Other than music, it features Kaggia lending an ear to listeners sharing their dramatic real-life stories.

    Fans had feared that they heard the last of her when she left Classic 105, but Kaggia made it clear that she had an undying passion for being on air.

    She stated that a return to radio was always on the cards, referencing the more than ten years she spent on radio.

    "It is like being in a relationship with someone for 10 years and then you break up, you can still have feelings so I can never be done with radio," Kaggia asserted.

    She further spoke on her Nyumbani Radio project, which is behind several talk-show episodes released online in recent months.

    Among those who have so far appeared on the talk-show are comedians Desagu, Alex Mathenge and Adhis Jojo.

    "Nyumbani Radio will still continue because it is a personal project, unrelated to what I am doing at Nation FM," she disclosed.

    Having spent years at Classic 105 and 1 FM, Kaggia described Nation FM as an exciting place to be, noting that she was elated to take on the new challenge.
