TV News Anchor Betty Kyallo was on February 25, spotted at Standard Group headquarters along Mombasa Road. She has hinted on social media that she would be back on TV from March 7th, 2021.
“She’s back! Told You It Wasn’t For Long. I Am So BLESSED. GRATEFUL TO GOD. March 7th,” She said
Kyalo quit KTN in 2018 and joined K24 where she worked for two years then resigned in what was somehow expected considering the TV station’s parent company Mediamax Network Limited had been struggling financially and was laying off staff.
Kyallo chose to join KTN after turning down offers from a number of media houses, among them state broadcaster KBC. Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) is said to be planning a major rebrand, and has managed to recruit big names as it looks to unveil a new slate of programming and brand identity in coming weeks.
A senior editor at Standard revealed that the firm had been in talks with Kyallo over the past two months and she had principally agreed to return. She joins at a time when KTN is experiencing a shake-up, with media veteran Peter Opondo having only recently taken over as Strategy and Content Editor for Broadcast, putting him firmly in charge of operations at KTN News, KTN home and Farmers TV as well as the media house’s radio stations.
