Kenyan News Anchor Dennis Okari speaks about his exit from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to return to NTV after 5 years.
He joined BBC from NTV in April 2014 before he returned to NTV a few months later.
In an interview with NTV’s Cross Fire, the father of one said that two things made him leave the international media house for NTV.
Okari added that the BBC did not give him the chance to tell the kind of African stories he wanted to tell, because there were so many people working with the British broadcaster, which narrowed his chances of telling the stories he wanted to tell.
He was also home sick and missed his family so much, adding that he did not enjoy the frequent work travels accompanied with working for BBC.
He said his opportunity was good and he learnt a lot while at the BBC, but coming back to work with NTV was so refreshing and he got the chance to do NTV investigates, something he couldn’t do whiles at BBC.
