NTV’s Olive Burrows is set to take over Victoria Rubadiri’s position as weekend anchor.

According to reports, Burrows will leave the Nation Media Group-owned television station for SK Macharia’s crown jewel.

She is currently serving her notice and will bid farewell to the Twin Towers later in the month.

Burrows previously worked at Capital FM before making the move to NTV in 2018.

She has hosted the breakfast show AM Live and prime-time news bulletins at NTV.

Olive Burrows at Capital FM made history by becoming the only Kenyan journalist to interview former U.S. President Barack Obama during his visit to Kenya in 2015.

The journalist’s full name is Olive Kalekye Burrows, she has a Kamba mother and a father of mixed British and Tanzanian origin.

WoK earlier reported on Victoria Rubadiri leaving Citizen TV and joining CNN.

Rubadiri hosted Citizen Weekend on Saturdays and Sunday Live with Jeff Koingange on Sundays.

The news anchor joins a list of journalists who have left the station for new pursuits.

Journalists who left Citizen TV include Hassan Mugambi, Chemutai Goin and Francis Gachuri.

Rubadiri won the BBC World News Komla Dumor Award in 2020.

Victoria Rubadiri just like Burrows previously worked with the Nation Media Group-owned NTV anchoring NTV Weekend alongside Larry Madowo who is currently at CNN.

Rubadiri graduated with a bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism at Temple University in Philadelphia in 2009.

At CNN she will be reunited with former NTV colleague Larry Madowo.
