Former K24 Alfajiri host Serah Teshna Ndanu has for the first time disclosed why she quit the Mediamax Television station.
Why I quit K24 TV – Serah Teshna
It wasn’t an easy decision!
Ms Teshna stated that she enjoyed working at K24 but the job was physically and mentally exhausting, because it was too demanding.
She went on to say that while working there, she did not have time for her family and friends, and she could not keep up. She added that she owed it to herself to quit.
“The truth is that TV can be so exhausting both physically and mentally. I had to be up by 3am and in studio say 4am ready to start. You can get so occupied with the job that you have no time to catch up with friends or even family,” she said to Standard.
Serah Teshna noted that the experience made her understand why most celebrities undergo depression because people expect them to be who they are in public even when they are stressed and are dealing with personal issues.
About four months ago, Ms Ndanu announced that she had parted ways with K24 but did not disclose why she had made the sudden decision.
Serah gave out a cheery goodbye to the K24 team who had held her hand and moulded her into the reputable TV host she is.
“Mediamax, K24 thank you so much. When I started I was very fresh, very green but you guys just held my hand and trusted me. I started the show with Jeff Mote, Ciru Muriuki and they held my hand and look at me right now. We have grown, it has been quite an interesting journey. Big thank you to the hosts, to the people off camera, directors, crew it’s been an amazing journey. K24 will always be my family,” she said.
