  • Nation Media Group has announced the return of the famous morning show, AM Live, on NTV starting Monday, June 13.

    According to the trailer released on Saturday, June 11, NTV is relaunching the morning show which will be airing every day of the week from 6:00am to 8:00am.

    The show will feature veteran news anchors including Mark Masai, Olive Burrows, and Winnie Lubembe, as well as reporters from across the country.

    The NTV morning show will cover different topics ranging from breaking news to developing stories and politics, and to spice up the coverage on elections, it will feature panel discussions and interviews.

    The show will bring on board panelists and experts to discuss an array of issues making headlines especially as the country heads to the elections.

    It is projected to help NTV counter the dominance of other media houses such as Citizen TV, KTN News, and K24 TV, which have been running extensive morning shows.

    Initially, the NTV was airing Your World in the morning. Lubembe took over the show from Gladys Gachanja early this year.

    The show airs every weekday from 7am to 9am and has several segments including those offering advice on matters health.

    AM Live took a break in April 2020. Debarl Inea was the show host at the time.

    During his departure, Inea noted that he was proceeding on leave but would return to screens later.

    "Currently because of Covid-19, we have taken a short break. I think Covid-19 has affected it as well. The break is going to run for at least three months starting yesterday (Monday, April 13, 2020).

    "For the morning, we have introduced something which is health-oriented and so for the next three months we shall shelve AM Live," Inea stated at the month.

    He then moved to K24 before being hired by KTN News.
