NTV has been dealt a blow following the resignation of Swahili news anchor Jane Ngoiri who has resigned from the Nation Media Group (NMG).
In an interview with a local publication, Ngoiri said that she resigned from the media station on Wednesday, January 28.
The eloquent news anchor stated that she had opted to resign to pursue personal interests.
“It is true that I have resigned from NTV. I left for personal reasons,” Ngoiri is quoted.
According to the report, Ngoiri remained guarded and revealed very little regarding her decision to quit.
During her time at NTV, besides being a news anchor, Ngoiri also doubled up as a deputy presentation editor.
Despite being primarily a swahili news anchor, she is also good broadcasting in english as well.
She however hinted that she would reveal her next move to her followers on social media.
Ngoiri was a mainstay in NTV Jioni — the swahili prime time news segment on NTV at 7.00pm alongside Salim Swaleh.
Before that, she was paired with Nimrod Taabu who decamped to Citizen TV in 2019.
She also has a couple of investigative pieces in her catalogue that gained online traction including Nairobi Bum Enhancers and Sisters of Death.
Prior to working for NMG, Ngoiri worked at K24 as an English news anchor.
In December 2020, Ngoiri was among 158 civilians awarded the Head of State Commendation (HSc) by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
