Popular K24 anchor quits
The move comes days after two other anchors left the station
In a post seen by Pulselive.co.ke, Wafula disclosed that Friday was his last day at the Mediamax-owned TV station.
“Last day . It has been a great 3 years hosting Alfajiri, The Daily Brief and covering 2017 Elections. Great team turned family. Looking forward to my next move. Soon.” shared Ian Wafula
Ian graduated from Daystar University in 2014 with a B.A in communication and got an opportunity to intern at KTN in August 2013 and later on was employed after 6 months.
In December 2015, Wafula parted ways with KTN and joined K24 to host Alfajiri alongside Amina Abdi who later moved to NTV to replace Larry Madowo on the Trend.
His move comes days after another pair of Journalists; Zawadi Mudibo and Maya Kayahawa were also poached by BBC.
BBC is currently expanding its presence and influence in Africa’s media space and so far has poached a good number of talents from local media houses.
Prominent names that have recently joined BBC include; Larry Madowo, Hudheifa Aden, Peter Mwangangi, Maureen Nyukuri, Mercy Kandie, Lynne Wachira and Slyvia Chebet.
