Jeff Koinange apologizes as he announces an end to his show

Three days after Standard Digital Editor disowned Jeff Koinange, the legendary talk show host has announced JKL won’t be airing on KTN.

 

On Monday November 21, Standard Digital Editor, David Ohito, appeared on NTV’s Press Pass where he announced that Standard Group had taken action against Jeff Koinange following outrage after Miguna Miguna insulted Esther Passaris on JKL.

“I would want to remind the viewers here and anybody else who is interested that there are ways in which TV stations work. One includes outsourcing credible people to produce content and then you simply air. That is how Jeff Koinange’s show came to KTN. I want to clarify again that Jeff Koinange is not in the ranked file of the staff of the Standard Group. But the management has taken a decision which it will be following administratively.”  David Ohito said while appearing on Press Pass.

What Mr. Ohito didn’t tell viewers on that Monday was that Standard Group had resorted to axing Jeff Koinange Live from KTN.

Jeff has been caught in one too many ugly incidents over the past three years that his show has been airing on KTN.

The decision Standard Group took is perceived to have been influenced by Jeff’s past mistakes on his eponymous show.

The legendary talk show host last night apologized to viewers over the Passaris/Miguna incident as he announced JKL had come to an end.

“One week ago right here at JKL, we had a program that deteriorated into something extremely ugly. People out  there probably thought I should have done a better job controlling the guests. Anyone who thought that it wasn’t up to par or I didn’t do a good job, I apologize so that we can move on. It is regrettable in most words but again… Having said that, this will be the final Jeff Koinange Live right here on KTN. Rest assured all of you watching tonight Jeff Koinange Live will be back on another station in the coming weeks, stay tuned for that. Jeff Koinange Live is not going anywhere, it’s just changing host.”  Jeff Koinange announced.
