Former K24 sport anchor Tony Kwalanda has joined Red Cross owned station Switch TV, days after being fired.
In a tweet, Kwalanda indirectly announced that he was headed to the South C placed Media house, that as so far received a number of journalists who were recently laid-off at K24 and Royal Media Services.
“TONY KWALANDA is switchING to which TV station?” Kwalanda posed a rhetoric question to his followers.
Reports indicate that Kwalanda will be hosting a sports show dubbed Sports Center starting July 13th, 2020 (Monday) from 8pm to 9pm.
Kwalanda worked at K24 for a period of 11 years before he was affected by the recent retrenchment that saw hundreds of employees declared jobless.
“I am switching to another station and taking sports to a whole new level. Thank you K24 for the 11 years of GREAT experience. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR MY NEXT MOVE!!!” said Kwalanda in his exit message.
