Having been on radio for more than a decade, former radio presenter DNG disagrees with a majority of Kenyans that comedians and other “unqualified” media personalities on air should be replaced by well-trained journalists.
“I have been seeing a lot of misinformation and clueless contribution by some people calling out Radio Stations for hiring people who are not trained journalists,” said DNG on social media.
“To assume that Radio Presenters are not trained is incorrect. Nobody goes on air without training unless they are recording a podcast in their house or a video on their phone.”
DNG was reacting to a flurry of attacks directed to radio hosts in Kenya, who according to many, lack professionalism and proper knowledge to be on radio. The attacks come after Shaffie Weru, DJ Joe Mflame and Neville were fired at Homeboyz Radio following their insensitive comments on live radio.
