Radio has for long been a crucial tool in keeping the community updated with news, current affairs and entertainment. Although the stations are many, the listenership highly depends on what a station can offer as well as the presenters.
The presenters are paid huge sums of money to keep us entertained and updated.
In this article, we take a look at some of the highest-paid radio presenters and what each takes home.
According to close sources, Kageni could reportedly be the highest-paid presenter. Kageni rakes between Ksh1.5 and Ksh1.8 million monthly.
The presenter hosts the breakfast show at Classic 105, together with his co-host Daniel Ndambuki (Churchill) who goes by the moniker Mwalimu King’ang’i.
