On Thursday, Njogoge announced his exit from station, during his morning show dubbed Good Morning Kenya. He joined KBC back in August 2020 after being shown the door at Mediamax, where he was a news anchor at K24.

“Courtesy of emerging interests and other things that I have to concentrate on as far as my life and career is concerned, Today will be my last show on good morning Kenya. I would like to pass my gratitude to the management of KBC and the team that has worked with me and given me yet another opportunity to come back home and be part of Good Morning Kenya" said Samuel Njoroge.


Despite announcing his exit, Njoroge did not reveal where he is headed next.

“This is not a goodbye, you will be seeing me and hearing from me very soon. in the meantime, it is a bow, and thank you so much for your support” said Samuel Njoroge.

Njoroge left KBC sometime in August 2018 and joined MediaMax's K24 before his stay at the station was brought to an end when he was laid off last year.

I would like to invite you to Emory Hotel in Kileleshwa tomorrow, Monday 22nd at 8:55am to discuss what this means to your employment. When you get to the hotel kindly ask for me. We thank you for your indulgence and cooperation in this matter.” reads the message.
