Celebrated media personality, Betty Kyallo, has left K24 TV.
K24 TV is owned by Kenya’s first family, the Kenyattas.
Her announcement made on Saturday, May 30, 2020, came as a surprise to many of her fans.
Betty joined Mediamax in September 2018. She thanked her fans for their support during her two-year stay with the station, saying it was time to bid them farewell.
She says “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.”
She had earlier in an Instagram post hinted her exit from K24.
She says “Hello from the other side, not sure about tomorrow so watch today.”
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 suggested that KTN, 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.
