Celebrated media personality Grace Msalame has left Radio Africa Group, the mother company to Star newspaper, KissTV, Bamba TV, Kiss100, Classic105FM, Radio Jambo, X-FM, Gukena FM and East FM.
She leaves Radio Africa having served in different capacities within the media company for seven years, including as tv host, producer, director, and Bamba TV Manager.
Grace, who doubles up as a Christian blogger and Viva brand Ambassador, made the announcement on social media as she said her goodbyes to the Waiyaki Way-based media company last week.
“How does one say Goodbye to almost 7years! It’s been a good run Radio Africa?? Thank you for the growth that has given me the wings to finally Dare Greatly & set out a New Path.
From hosting to producing, directing & to Management- are all opportunities I will forever be grateful for.
I’ve never been one to say goodbye or even know how to for that matter so though I may have chosen this path I say thank you for all the years, all the lessons, all the challenges & most of all for all the support.
And now Jesus take the Lead… Your Will, Your Way??” wrote Msalame with the hashtags ‘EndOfTheRoad’, ‘NewSeason’, ‘DaringGreatly’, and ‘GodsWill’.
She, however, did not reveal her next endeavor.
Msalame also used Instagram to thank Caroline Mutoko for all the support.
Msalame’s exit comes two months after the Lions Place media company announced a major restructuring to focus the group’s media assets on developing a digital business.
In March 2016, Radio Africa converged all its content operations to create a single newsroom for the Star, radios, digital and television.
The Group’s CEO and co-owner, Ghanaian Patrick Quarcoo, announced back in February that the next phase of the group’s change had started.
“The next phase of our change, begins this month. We have taken a comprehensive look at our operations and made the tough decisions necessary to focus the company on the significant and promising opportunities of the future,” Quarcoo said in an email to staff.
“As a result, we are now undertaking operational efficiency measures to reduce overall operating costs in 2017. This will affect some positions and some roles that will be merged or become redundant.”
The firm will redirect its investments into the digital space and expects to launch a number of new products in the next four months, including online radio stations and innovative music offerings.
