Former KTN, Nation journalists shine in global ranking
In the most recent ranking done by Richtopia, Joy Doreen Biira (Formerly at KTN) was ranked number 22.
Also featuring in the list is Mugambi M’Mutegi who worked with Nation’s Business Daily until early this year.
Biira took to Social media, expressing humility at being ranked among the best globally.
"I don’t know if Richard Branson’s response to my tweet months ago had anything to do with this. I’m honoured to be mentioned alongside the greatest business Journalists in the world," she wrote on Instagram.
The award-winning presenter has been active in business circles, hosting several business events since quitting KTN.
M’Mutegi who quit Nation Media Group for Competitions Authority of Kenya was ranked number 43.
The former Business Daily writer began his career at NMG where he worked for 8 years before opting to advance his career at Competitions Authority of Kenya.
Those listed in the ranking were described as “influential people at effectively having soft-power and being pro-active, particularly in the digital sphere”.
The two quit their careers at the leading media houses at a time when various media houses were restructuring and relaunching in the face of growing competition.
