    Among those joining her team is former Kameme FM presenter Moses Kanyira, who joins the station in the same capacity.

    Kanyira is also the proprietor of Moses Kanyira TV, an online platform that targets children with its programming.

    Kimotho has also hired celebrated broadcaster and former Kameme FM presenter, Peninah Muthoni Mbugua, better known as PM Squared.

    PM Squared was one of the pioneer journalists at Kameme FM and has over 20 years of experience in the media industry. 

    Another veteran, Evans Wanyoike - who is remembered for being the first-ever on-air broadcaster for Kameme FM when it was launched - is also among those joining 91.0FM.

    Njeri Wa Njenga, a youthful entrant, has also been hired as a show host in the new radio station.

    Wambui Wa Maingi, yet another former Kameme FM presenter, will be joining Kimotho’s new station.

    Famed Kikuyu comedian, Machangi Man Solo Papa, who also worked at Kameme FM, has also been hired by his former boss. 

    Former 3-Stones TV presenter, Njoroge Wa Gichini, will also be part of the team. The TV station is owned by Rose Kimotho.
