Media Job -Management at Cape Media, which runs TV47 and new Radio 47, has today announced the appointment of Macharia Wamugo as their new Group Editorial Director.
The company, founded by MKU chairman, Prof Simon Gicharu, has added seasoned editors to its sea of talent as it fights for a share of the TV, radio and digital media , locally.
For instance, on 1st May, 2023, Cape Media CEO Ken Otwenyo announced the appointment of Wamugo and Gibendi Ramenya as Group Editorial Director and head of Digital, respectively.
“Macharia will spearhead the Group’s editorial policy and leadership while advising the CEO and board on the best future fit strategy for Editorial Content,” Mr Otwenyo said in an internal memo. “Effectively, he will oversee Editorial operations for all content platforms Including TV, Radio and Digital,” the announcement read.
Mr Macharia – from China Media Group –CGTN Africa – has also taken up the role of Head to TV, which will have him oversee the review and repositioning of the group’s flagship product, TV 47.
Wamugo is a media and communications professional with 19 years of experience in news content production. He began his career as a Radio journalist at Kameme FM in 2003 and has risen through the ranks as a multi-media journalist.
Meanwhile, Cape Media has also reached a deal with former Tuko Managing Director Ramenya Gibendi to join the budding media company as Head of Digital Services & Managing Editor Digital. Mr Gibendi left Tuko last week and his position was taken up by Ms Julia Majale.
Mr Gibendi was reportedly headed to government but changed to Cape Media as a digital strategist. He has risen from a newspaper reporter to a digital czar over the past eight years.
He cut his journalism skills at Daily Nation where he worked as business reporter between 2013 and 2015 before making a leap of faith to join Tuko, then an emerging viral news site, as a writer. He then rose to the position of managing editor in 2016. Two years later, in January 2018, Mr Gibendi, who holds Bachelor of Arts Journalism & Mass Communication from Masinde Muliro University, was promoted to the position of Managing Director Tuko Media Ltd.
