Highly celebrated on-air personalities Kofi Okyere Darko popularly known as KOD and Jon Germain have parted ways with media conglomerate EIB Network after five years of service in the organisation.
The duo made the announcement via social media, two hours apart.
According to the duo, the termination of their contracts was a mutual understanding.
Jon Germain wrote on his facebook page ““I am happy to announce that after 5 years and 9 months of being with STARR FM & the EIB family, we have decided to mutually part ways . I’d like to thank everyone who worked with me from the Drop off to The Zone..And everyone who tuned in to my shows. All the best.”
KOD also wrote on facebook “After 5 straight years at EIB, we mutually parted company last Thursday. It’s been 5 awesome years with an amazing family. From Live FM, my love child as Head of events & host of 360 Live (I truly enjoyed my days at Live with the youngsters) & later moving to Starr to host the Zone & Starr Dive, it’s been a fabulous learning curve.”
He added “I’m indebted to the Duffour family, my brother & friend Bolaray (since our mid-teens), Von, gorgeous Emaline, Jeffrey De Gea (who walked me through a lot), Miss Nancy Adobea Anane & my fav marketing & sales family…. our daily KOD tales ( Selassie Tettey Kekeli Gloria Hogba)….. and the last year with my old friend, the gorgeous Cookie & DJ Vyrusky on Starr Drive, it’s been an awesome trip.”
“I want to say thanks to the EiB family for believing my capabilities & the fab times.
A break from radio is in order after 24 years right? From Monday, you can catch me at NINETEEN57 off the Oxford Street from 10am. May God bless us all,” he ended.
The pair join a long list of staff who have left the media network.
The EIB Network has in recent times seen many of its workers exiting due to a reported non-payment of salaries.
The company at a time, African Entertainment gathered, could not pay its staff for eight solid months, forcing some of them to resign in search of other jobs.
Sources say the EIB Network headed by Bola Ray is still faced with sharp financial crisis, with some more workers likely to resign over salary arears.
