Kiss TV shut down months after relaunch
Radio Africa’s Kiss TV has been shut down a few months after relaunch for lack of capacity to generate revenue.
Radio Africa Group Chief Operations Officer Martin Khafafa broke the news in a statement in which he thanked the staff of the station for the efforts they had put into the growth of the station.
“As you may be aware, our department has been unable to generate revenue despite the efforts of everyone involved to turn the station around.
“Consequently, we will be shutting down the station today 17th March. All affected staff will be duly informed on the handover process by the HR team,” Khafafa said.
The station was revived in May 2021in a pompous event that invited top talents and media personalities, including Kamene Goro, Charlie Karumi, Lotan, Quellie Odero, Kym Nickdee, Bill Mbote, and Joe Saina.
Kamene Goro ended her service for the station early this year, while Charlie Karumi left in 2022 to relocate to Canada.
