Renowned media personality Terryanne Chebet has quit from her position as Metropol TV’s General Manager, one year after being appointed to the post.
The ex-Citizen TV news anchor announced that she would be venturing into entrepreneurship after enjoying a media career that spanned over 10 years.
Terryanne made the announcement on her social media pages on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
“Today (Tuesday, June 30) I say goodbye to my incredible team at Metropol TV. What an incredible journey it’s been! You have taught me the real definition of being a leader and what teamwork is,” she posted on Instagram.
“This wasn’t an easy decision to make, especially because of your dedication and commitment to getting the job done. Our commitment to telling the stories of mama Mboga’s, SME’s and startups has inspired me greatly and I will take this to my next journey,” she added.
The brand ambassador also lauded her followers and audience asking them to support her in her personal endeavours. She is the founder and CEO of Keyara Organics, a natural skin, and hair care products company.
“I deeply appreciate you all for your viewership, criticism and suggestions that helped us build the first 24-hour Business News Channel in Kenya.
“As I embark on a personal journey of entrepreneurship, I hope you will ride this journey with me,” she rallied as her colleagues celebrated her at a send-off party.
Before serving as General Manager at Metropol TV, Terryanne was the CEO of Fanaka TV, a business centred TV station that gives insight and an outlook on Kenya’s business curve and the economy at large.
She also once served as brand ambassador for Turkish baby diaper firm, Hayat Kimya, which makes diapers under the brand name Molfix Diapers.
