2021 saw a lot of career movements in Kenya's media industry, with many journalists making a comeback and others being poached.

Kenyan journalists who switched stations in 2021

Debarl Inea

Former NTV new Anchor Debarl Inea landed a new job with Mediamax owned Station K24, in January after being shown the door at Nation Media Group.

However, months later in October, Debarl joined KTN as an anchor and programmes editor.

Standard Media had offered the anchor a chance to join the station in 2020 but he declined after the parties failed to agree on the terms.

At the time he had just left NTV where he was hosting the breakfast show alongside different guests.

Victoria Rubadiri

Citizen TV news anchor Victoria Rubadiri in August announced that she would be taking leave from Citizen TV for a period of three months until December 2021.

As the winner of the 2020 Komla Dumor Award, Rubadiri went to BBC London for both work experience and training.

I am excited at the prospect of learning new skills at the BBC to be able to connect with audiences locally, regionally and internationally, no matter on which platform the story is being told," she said after receiving the award in 2020.

Grace Kuria

Media Personality Grace Kuria landed a new job at the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), in September after parting ways with China Global Television Network (CGTN).

Ms Kuria’s arrival at BBC was received with lots of positive vibrations from her fans and followers. Grace has joined BBC as a Broadcast Journalist.

Grace Kuria announced her exit from CGTN on September 20, after working for the media house for 8 months.

Isabella Kituri

Former K24 news anchor Isabella Kituri also added her name to the growing list of Kenyan Journalists who joined the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

Previously, Ms Kituri worked with Deutsche Welle (Apprenticeship) and Standard Media Group.

Kituri was among editors and senior reporters who were dismissed in June last year, in the second round of retrenchment at Mediamax.
