They made TV interesting to watch as it was not all about them pulling stunts on social media.
Can you recognize thsese faces which graced our screens in the 80’s and 00’s?
Dressed in crisp shoulder suits and with their hair and make-up done up elegantly, these female and male news anchors were the epitome of grace, style, warmth, and composure.
Back when KTN was ‘Channel 62’, there was a TV presenter named Fayaz Qureshi, who mastery of the Queens language put many of us to shame.
Fayaz also hosted the ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ o the same TV channel.
Other members of the TV news cast included Catherine Kasavuli, Katherine Openda, Zein Verjee, Mercy Oburu, Christine Nguku, Njoroge Mwaura among others.
Raphael Tuju was also a presenter on NTV, before leaving for politics.
Christine Nguku was a sweet face many of us came to love on KTN. She has and continues to be an inspiration to upcoming female journalists.
Kathleen Openda was a veteran journalist whose TV presence was undeniable. Check out her picture below:
