Mark Masai fired at NTV photo


After being let go by the media company, Mark Masai, the prime-time news anchor for NTV, promised his fans that he would return to the airwaves.

Masai said he was taking a sabbatical and was optimistic about the future in a statement dated Thursday, December 1.

He didn't say if he had found a new job or planned to become a communication consultant.

Nevertheless, he said he had a terrific experience at the station and that it had a lot of talent.

Masai also posted a video montage with pictures from 2008, when he was just starting out as a news anchor.

"NTV is a fantastic group! These days mark a change in era. It was a fantastic concert. We need to take a little commercial break. I'll return! He declared.

The seasoned anchor said that while he waits, he will be working on other things.
"This is the current state of the global media environment, and regrettably, I came out on the short end of this one."

"However, I will return to other platforms; this is not the end of my career in the media. "Watch this space, is all I have to say," he said on Capital FM.

Masai's comment came a few hours after he found out that he was one of the media workers who had been sent home as part of the station's ongoing reorganization.


Numerous insider sources suggested that further departures would occur over the next few days.

Masai left shortly after the station changed its top management, which was done because of the global economic downturn and the changing media landscape.

Former Citizen TV editorial director Joe Ageyo was named group editorial director as a result of the changes made in November. 


More than 5 other reporters and editors were also fired. More to be fired soon as the company restructures.
