Nairobi - Over 500 workers at Nation Media Group (NMG) will lose their jobs after the firm announced closure of four of its broadcasting outlets.

NMG in a memo addressed to staff Thursday said it will close down its two radio station and one TV station.

He explained that QTV will be merged with NTV to create a strong multi-lingual TV station under groups popular flagship brand NTV.

“Regrettably, this will result in a reduction of our workforce through job redundancies. We do recognise that today’s announcement will be difficult for the affected employees and their families. This exercise will be carried out with due respect to our employees and within the Kenyan laws. We will strive to provide all the necessary support to help them manage through this transition,” Muganda explained.

Among those expected to lose their jobs are news anchors, reporters, producers, camera men and women and even drivers.
