Top five news anchors to watch in 2013.

Female TV anchors have become an indispensable part of news in Kenya. The number of people watching a particular TV station’s news heavily relies on the aesthetic value brought by the female anchors.  KTN was for long a favorite of many during the days of Catherine Kasavuli, a trend they maintained by getting on board Lillian Muli. Today, TV stations are trying to outdo each other with hot anchors, and quite a number of anchors are currently being groomed to take over the helms of news reading. Here are a few big ones to watch in 2013. 

Victoria Rubadiri
Victoria Rubadiri had been reading news at Capital Fm before Nation Media Group came calling. KTN
wanted her but it is alleged her former workmate Ann Kiguta who is at KTN stood in the way. A mother of
 one daughter, Victoria is a graduate of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. She has experience working as a freelance PR consultant in New Jersey and New York, as well as broadcast media at WMGM NBC 40 television station in Linwood, New Jersey.  Her looks and voice get audiences rallying behind her and is a sure replacement for former NTV anchors, Linda Ogutu and Peninah Karibe.




Alice Odera
Alice Atieno Odera of Citizen TV has had people talking about her for sometime now.  Odera is an experienced image consultant, and owns Beauty Logic Image Management, an image/personal branding consulting firm that provides synergy services to corporations and individuals.
This curvaceous lady was on the front line in the raising funds for the medical treatment of some of Loreto Convent Msongari's bus accident victims.  Odera and Morgan are expected to fill the gaps left by Terryanne Chebet who left for CCTV, and Tony Timase who has joined K24.

Michelle Morgan
She got heads turning when she first hit the Citizen TV screen reading business news. News of this sultry business news reader spread across social networks like wildfire with everyone wanting to get a glimpse of her. She has since cemented her position as an anchor and is in line to becoming one of the bigwig female news anchors in the country.






Joy Doreen Biira
She works for KTN as a reporter but also anchors sometimes. The station is grooming her for the next level probably anchoring prime time news as many times as the likes of Ann Kiguta.  Joy comes from Uganda and has put up a good fight to earn a place in the very competitive TV scene. Her looks and demeanor definitely go a long way in getting numbers behind her.






Charity Kimani
Charity was raised in the USA and is a journalist by profession. Her Twitter bio reads, "Journalist at KTN : was raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Future Anchor" clearly an indication that the bigwigs at KTN are looking to have a Lilian Muli effect when she finally sits on that prime time news seat.
