BBC seems to have joined the poaching game by picking the best local media personalities and the latest to join their team is Ciru Muriuki.
First it was Larry Madowo, who had been poached then came Georgie Ndirangu, Sharon Machira, Ian Wafula and the latest to join the team is our favourite TV girl Ciru Muriuki who has been a presenter with K24.
Almost a week ago Ciru shared the news of her departure in the message captioned below;
“I’m about to wrap up my final time co-hosting K24 Alfajiri. I am so honored to have worked on such a great show with such a great team! @iamjeffmote and @serahteshna keep killing this morning TV game! I’m super excited about the next phase of my career. Dreams do come true. 😊😊😊🙏🙏 #k24alfajiri.”
It is hard to say goodbye especially to people we consider family regardless of whether we are related by blood and for Ciru saying goodbye to her fellow hosts at K24, Serah Teshna and Jeff Mote was something hard for her.
“Goodbyes. I hate them. That’s why I’m not saying goodbye to these two. We’ll still see each other lots. I love these guys. @iamjeffmote @serahteshna nawapenda.”
She recently posted a photo of her at the BBC offices with the caption,
Ian Wafula also joined the media house not so long ago, after exiting K24. He too shared the news with his fans on social media writing,
“New chapter. Looking forward to starting soon at the BBC as Broadcast Journalist, News Review. I’d like to call it my new home but it’s bigger than that, the next step in my career. I’ve seen God’s manifestation in this process having been rejected 4 times after endless tests and grueling interviews.
What’s yours is yours, at the right time. Thanking my family and close friends for standing by me. Special thanks to @larrymadowo for the three challenging words “You deserve better” that took me off my comfort zone to yearn for greater opportunities. 🙏🏾.”
