  • KBC anchor Samuel Njoroge announced his resignation from KBC during a live broadcast on Thursday, January 28.

    While closing off his segment on the Good Morning Kenya, the anchor disclosed that he would not be anchoring for the national broadcaster.

    "Today will be my last show at Good Morning Kenya. I would like to pass my gratitude to the management of KBC and the team that has worked with me and given me a warm reception since I came back to KBC," he stated.

    He, however, did not explain the reason for his departure only citing emerging interests in his career and personal life.

    "This is not a goodbye, you will be seeing me and hearing from me very soon. In the meantime, it is a bow, and thank you so much for your support," he stated.

    Njoroge left KBC sometime in August 2018 and joined MediaMax's K24TV where he served as a news anchor.

    Two years in the stint, a massive lay off exercise at the station saw him lose his position and he later returned to KBC in August 2020.

    Earlier in January 2021, Grace Kuria announced her departure from Standard Media Group while hosting the station's lunchtime bulletin.

    She had served at the station for two years since joining in January 2019 after she was poached from K24 TV

    Similarly, on December 6, Anne Kiguta quit K24 TV citing editorial differences with the station.

    Days later on Friday, December 11, gospel musician Joyce Omondi left Switch TV after almost two years hosting the Full Circle show.
