Media Personality Laura Walubengo has revealed that leaving Capital FM after 12 and a half years was a bit scary for her.

Ms Walubengo who left the Chris Kirubi owned Radio Station to join Dstv, noted that despite the fear of change, the transition turned out to be very rewarding.

“Moving from Capital to DStv was such a life changer for me. I grew so much and so quickly. My outlook, my ideas, my thought process, my dreams, the possibilities; everything just grew. It was so scary leaving Capital FM after 12.5yrs, and it wasn’t an active move but rather a door opening and I couldn’t peep - I was either in or out. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds. Even today! 6 days to 39” shared Luara Walubengo.

Laura Walubengo worked at Capital as a presenter before she left for South African firm MultiChoice in 2014, where she secured a job as the Lead Digital Communications Specialist East Africa for DStv based in Kenya before she returned to Capital in 2017.
