Radio presenter Sheila Kwamboka has joined Radio Africa Group following the recent local media shake-up.
The move was made public by RAL Group Chief Operating Officer, Martin Khafafa who said that the company was talented to land the presenter who is among the most talented in Kenya.
“Our quest for continuous improvement is tremendous. Sheila Kwamboka better known as Kwambox has joined Radio Africa group. She has quite a reputation for being the home of the best media talent in this country over the past 20 years,” said Kafafa.
“I’m hoping that Kwambox as an addition will not only give listeners a chance to enjoy bigger, better, more engaging radio but also give advertisers a chance you know to get products articulated and well connected to consumers.”
Kwamboka’s move comes following a recent mass exit and resignations from Standard Group’s Spice FM and Vybez Radio. Kwamboka had been at Vybez Radio for two years.
She joined the station 3 years ago to host a morning show called #VybezMVPs alongside Brian Mbunde.
Standard Group began dishing out dismissal letters on Monday, January 16, in what appears to be the top management’s decision to cut costs and save the station.
Kwamboka, who has already cleared her social media, hinted about the new start but hasn’t officially made the announcement on any platform.
“I know I’ve been quiet. I was recharging. This year I am ready to give my very best. I’m almost battery full. And I have a BIG announcement because you know we start the year BIG!!!!” she said on social media.
Kwamboka also worked at Radio Africa Group’s Homeboyz Radio for 7 years.
