The new announcement comes a day after reports emerged that Hero Radio was shutting down completely.

According to the management of the Radio Station, they are in the process of rebranding to achieve a new look.

A memo doing rounds on social media indicated that Hero Radio was going off the air.

“In every journey, there must be stop overs. Unfortunately, Hero radio has come to one. We have decided to break so many beautiful hearts who have worked tirelessly to ensure we remain afloat but the tide has proven to be stronger than us. We wish to announce that we are with immediate effect halting all your services as we shut down to strategize on our next move. We will communicate soon if something comes up.” Read the memo read part of Memo

To counter the fake memo that had to go viral on social media, Hero Radio management has also opted to write a new letter explaining what is happening.

“It has come to our attention that a fake memo purported to be from Hero has been making rounds on social media. The fake memo has not been signed or authorized by the management. We would like to let our audience know that Hero Radio is not closing shop and neither are we sacking our loyal dedicated staff members. We are in the process of rebranding. We have a new state of art studio which will be launched on 1 Sept 2017 at our premises in Naka, Nakuru. New talents exciting visual content and a new website are site to be launched then” read the official memo from Hero Radio.

For the past few years, the media industry has been affected by changes in the Kenyan economy hence forcing them to cut off its man power by firing or retrenching workers.
