Citizen TV reporter quits, joins international media house

Award winning Citizen TV Special Features reporter Dorcas Wangira has been poached by London based media house The Economist.

In an announcement she made on twitter, Ms Wangira said she was happy that she was beginning a new chapter of her career at The Economist.

She also said that five years ago, she was an intern at the Standard Group and she was glad to finally get to do what she did, as an intern.

5 years ago, I was an intern for the first time at the Standard Group .At first it scared and challenged me. But now I am delighted to relive that experience at The Economist in London as the African proverb says "to be reminded even if I already know,” she wrote.

She joined the Royal Media Services late last year during the mass exodus of top journalists and was among the many who joined Citizen TV.

Elliot Award

This comes a few weeks after Dorcas was announced the winner of this year’s (2019) Michael Elliott Award for Excellence in African Storytelling.

Wangira, who reported on the harm caused by female genital mutilation and the hope offered by five tech-savvy teenage girls, emerged top among 218 applicants.

Her winning report, “The App and The Cut,” was aired on KTN News in June 2018. In the 25 minutes feature, Wangira traveled to different communities where girls are forced to undergo the illegal procedure.

The prestigious award is given by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) in partnership with ONE and the Elliott family.
