Gathu’s last job on mainstream media was in 2016 where worked at Nation FM as the host of the State of the Nation morning show. He was later laid off during a brutal restructuring at Nation Media which left him jobless for almost five years.
“Nation FM shut down and we were told to go home. By that time, I had never been out of a job for 27 or 28 years. I had never been fired. I was always poached, then one day at the top of my career I was told time was up,” Gathu said in an interview last year.
“If it was not for my wife Cathy, I am really not sure I would have made it. At some point, I was ready to take any job for whatever salary, but she said, “You know what, don’t worry, I will handle it. I will shoulder you but you have to be sure what you want to do.” Even when it was tough for her, she was there. That was when I started my communications company.”
