Celebrated media personality Betty Kyallo took fans by surprise on Saturday, May 30, after announcing that she was leaving K24 TV – which is owned by the Kenyatta family.
The bubbly newscaster, who joined Mediamax in September 2018, thanked her fans for their support during her 2-year stint, adding that it was time to bid them farewell.
“I really appreciate you all. It is now time for me to say goodbye here on K24 TV. Thank you so much for all the support, I appreciate you, God bless you and I love you,” Betty stated.
She had hinted her exit from K24 in an earlier Instagram post where she told her fans to asking watch for today as they are not certain about tomorrow.
“Hello from the other side, not sure about tomorrow so watch today,” she wrote.
Although the news of Betty’s exit took some by surprise, others saw it coming since Mediamax had announced that it would be laying off some employees as a result of the decline in revenue that has been caused by COVID-19.
Other reports indicate that KTN, which is owned by the Standard Group, has bought some of the programs on K24 TV and this has led to majority of the staff at the latter station being declared redundant.
Anyway, we as Ghafla wish Betty Kyallo all the best in her future endeavors.
