    His followers were swift to congratulate him for his steady growth from a business reporter at NTV to an anchor at the international TV station. 

    Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, comedian Eddie Butita, colleagues at BBC Africa and anchors at several local TV stations congratulated Madowo. 

    Anchoring or hosting a TV new segment is considered a level up in broadcast journalism from reporting, a feat Madowo has achieved just a few months being a BBC US correspondent. 

    Madowo joined BBC as the Africa Business Editor in April 2018 but took a one-year sabbatical to study economics at Columbia University, in New York in July 2019. 

    After his studies, he was appointed as a US correspondent covering the elections across different states.

    Former K24 TV reporter Zawadi Mudibo was appointed as Madowo’s replacement, taking up the Business Editor role. 

    In 2020. Madowo won the 2020 Philip Greer Award for Financial Writing thanks to his 9,000-word thesis exploring the aftermath of the e-commerce firm, Jumia’s listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in April 2019.

    “I’m always very careful not to do anything just because of the sake of it, or because all my colleagues are doing it,” Madowo spoke of his success in an interview on September 3.
