Former NTV news presenter Larry Madowo has officially taken his position as the head of the business desk in Africa.
Larry expressed his thrill to join the BBC, a media network he says he grew up admiring.
“I grew up admiring the quality of journalism the BBC produces around the world and it is an honour to be a part of a bold new team that will tell authentic African stories for audiences across multiple platforms.”
“I look forward to amplifying stories about entrepreneurship, ingenuity and innovation that I’ve witnessed as I have travelled all over Africa,” said Larry.
The BBC Africa appointed Larry as a business editor after his exit at NTV.
Regional Editor for BBC News Africa Solomon Mugera said Larry is a fantastic addition to their new team.
