    She also pointed out that she would be co-hosting another show at Nation FM on Saturday afternoon, alongside radio presenters Roy Karuhize and Kieni Githinji. 

    "Nation will reveal (the show) from tomorrow, they will run teasers so if you see the teasers on tv, it's pretty obvious...

    "The deal is for the foreseeable future, if you tune in, we'll be there for a long time, if you don't we will be gone," Radull stated amidst laughter.

    The media personality is highly accoladed as a guru as she is known for her grasp of the sports environment and expert opinions and analysis on matters regarding the sports world.

    The journalist is slated to hit the screens just before the English Premier League kick-off, where she is known as an ardent Arsenal fan. 

    Radull's journey in the media industry began in 1997 where she served as head East African Producer for BBC World Service for two years. 

    She later jumped ship to Radio Africa where she solidified her name among the great sports journalists in the country. 

    During her 21-year tenure, she launched shows such as Radio Jambo and hired anchors such as NTV's Idah Waringa as well as Citizen TV's Mukami Wambora. 

    This past week, the journalist took to social media to announce her departure from the station pointing out that she believed that she was not designed to just push papers and write reports. 

    "I haven't been on radio for a year and a half for reasons I choose not to share but in two weeks' time I will be back on your airwaves; with the "Great Roy" Karuhize and Kieni Githinji; to continue to push the sports agenda.

    "To my fam; I want to say Thank you. It has been an amazing ride," she detailed.
