Celebrated NTV journalist and the trend host Larry Madowo has called it quits at NTV.

In a tweet, the former Trend host said that the job was one of the great honors of his life and that he is grateful for the opportunity.

“I leave as I came: humbled & grateful. The job was one of the great honours of my life. Thanks to everyone who watched, and to Nation for the privilege of the opportunity. I’m proud of my amazing colleagues & everything we accomplished. Farewell, my friends. Stay woke,” he said.

Larry Madowo fell out with Nation Media Group's management after he together with the then Head of Broadcast Division Linus Kaikai disobeyed orders from the managing editor not to provide live coverage to opposition leader Raila Odinga's mock swearing-in at Uhuru Park in January 30.

Kaikai was the first to leave NTV after he was sidelined in a restructuring that was done by the Managing Editor, Tom Mshindi.

Larry's departure comes a day after eight columnists who have been contributors to the Agha Khan owned media house's Daily Nation newspaper resigned.
