No sooner had Joey Muthengi quit Citizen TV than she landed a new job in the United States.
Ms Muthengi, who is said to have fallen out with the Royal Media Services-owned station over her partnership with bookmaker Betin, has landed a gig with Voice of America (VoA), an international radio station in Washington DC, United States.
It just so happens that Joey Muthengi interned at the US government-funded international radio broadcast while she was still in college.
An elated Joey could not hide her joy and shared the good news after receiving an email from VOA English to Africa Service.
Part of the email read, “Joey, English to Africa Service Voice of America has an urgent job request for you, please review on playdesk and accept or decline ASAP.”
Muthengi captioned a screenshot of the email as follows: “Omg. Voice Of America was my 1st internship. 😢😢 While still in college. 😢😢 I can’t even. Look at God 🙏🏼🙏🏼.”
In 2001, the Voice of America launched a 24-hour FM frequency in Nairobi broadcasting from Washington DC via FM Station 107.5.
VOA’s English to Africa Service provides multimedia news and information covering all of Africa.
