Broke media personalities…. listen up! Jimmy Gathu to launch own TV station

While his peers are selling their kidneys and asking Kenyans to ‘saidia’, media personality Jimmy Gathu is opening a new TV station.

Jimmy who has had over 20 years of experience in the media industry as a TV and Radio host, producer, director, is making major boss moves, and we hope others can learn a lesson from him.

Kenyans are not yet done with Bahati as they attack his wife once again

He is now licensed and is looking for investors to help him grow the station and make it a dream come true.

’Hi! Just got my TV license and I’m now looking for investors. If interested, kindly send me your email. Cheers!’’.

He had applied for the broadcast license last year on October 6th.

The station will run under the name Nai TV.

This was Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru’s first career choice

His loyal fans and followers were excited to hear about his new achievement and were there to support him.
