For most Kenyan journalists, being on TV is a lifetime dream even though few get a chance to grace the small screens in living rooms.
Many launch their careers at little-known media houses before their talent thrusts them into the limelight and finally into mainstream media.
For instance, a number of the rising TV stars that are becoming household names launched their careers at Ebru Africa Television before their ultimate breakthrough.
Kenyans.co.ke takes a look at five journalists who started their careers at Ebru Africa TV.
The renowned Citizen TV anchor Ayub Abdikadir began his career as a volunteer and later an Intern at Ebru TV while in his final year in university.
He moved to Nairobi from Wajir to pursue his education in journalism at Mount Kenya University and landed the internship - a rare opportunity, because of his endless determination to become the best at his work.
Ayub later moved to K24 where his career blossomed to the rest of the world during the 2022 Presidential debate while he interviewed former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati.
The interview earned him an enviable spot at Citizen TV as an anchor.
From the University of Nairobi, Shabaan joined Ebru TV as an anchor before moving to Metropol TV at 17th floor of JKUAT Towers along Kenyatta Avenue.
The flawless business journalist who keeps her personal life under wraps, joined NTV in 2022 where she anchors business bulletins and sometimes one pm news.
Zainab's breakthrough in the industry started in March 2016 when she began reporting and anchoring the news for Ebru TV.
After two years at the station, she joined NTV as a news anchor where she grew her career on screen rising to prominence in the media industry.
Before her debut, Zainab delved into a lot of humanitarian work and served as the youth chairperson for the Kenya Red Cross Society Kajiado County branch for a period of two years.
Linda started her career as a TV anchor at Ebru TV after leaving radio punchline Africa.
She later moved to TV47 as an anchor, becoming one of the first journalists to join the Cape Media station.
In 2022, she was chosen among the journalist who would moderate the debate between Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and then Azimio's running mate Martha Karua.
However, the interviewers were changed before the debate.
Museo started out by volunteering at Ebru TV on the weekends.
In an earlier interview, she narrated that she approached the security guard at Ebru offices and asked for a volunteering opportunity because she thought that she would be turned away if she asked for a job.
While at the station, she developed her very own health feature which impressed her bosses.
Her debut on TV happened when a news anchor at the station fell sick and she was called upon to take up the role, which she ended up doing for one week.
Purity worked for the national broadcaster KBC before KTN News won her heart.
