Former KTN Presenter joins BBC

The former anchor has reported from Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya.

Nancy, who was born in Uganda, Kacungira started out as a radio Presenter in Power FM Uganda and later joined KTN in Kenya in 2013 as an anchor for prime time news and has reported from Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya.

She broke the good news to her fans saying: "Sooo…I've made the big move and started a new role with the BBC based in London. Look! They rolled out the red carpet for me! Well, it wasn't really for me but that's a minor detail. I'm excited about this amazing journey God is taking me on, for his glory."

In 2005, Kacungira was awarded the BBC World News Komla Dumor Award.

The award was set up in honour of presenter Komla Dumor who passed away in January 2014, and aims to continue Komla’s legacy by celebrating African journalism and finding exceptional talent.

Kacungira has a BA in Design and Visual Communications from Makerere University, Uganda, and a Masters in Communication and Media Studies from the University of Leeds, both with honours.
