Journalist Lynn Ngugi has announced her next career move about two weeks after she left online media outlet Tuko.
In a video posted on YouTube on September 2, 2021, Ngugi said that she had opted to start her online channel to continue with the journey of “telling untold stories in the society”.
“I am truly grateful for all of you that have held my hand. Your comments, emails, all I see is positive vibes. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Where I am going is here (referring to Lynn Ngugi Channel),”said Ms Ngugi.
At Tuko where she worked as a producer and head of video content for four years, the company said that she had left by way of mutual consent.
“The company fully appreciates the hard work, dedication, zeal, and sheer commitment demonstrated by Lynn Ngugi throughout her working period thus growing TUKO.co.ke’s YouTube channel into a household name/brand,”Tuko said in an email to employees.
Her Youtube channel has so far gained over 100,000 subscribers, and by the time of doing to press the video had over 150,000 views.
