KTN Journalist lands lucrative job at the World Bank

Brenda Kerubo, a former journalist for KTN News, has accepted a new position at the World Bank just two months after leaving the Mombasa Road-based publication.

When she announced the wonderful news in a statement dated Friday, September 23, Kerubo was unable to contain her delight.

The experienced writer revealed her employment with the major financial firm as a communication consultant in a LinkedIn post.

“I’m happy to share that I’m starting a new position as a communication consultant at World Bank,” an elated Kerubo shared.

In her new role, Kerubo will be tasked with building the institution’s corporate image, crafting internal and external World Bank announcements, and developing marketing strategies.

Kerubo will work with a team drawn from over 170 countries tasked with elevating economic growth worldwide.

Her appointment comes months after she enrolled on a master’s programme at Aarhus University, Denmark.

“I am a scholar at the European Union’s prestigious Erasmus Mundus joint Master’s: Journalism, Media and Globalisation. I will undertake the program at Aarhus University, Denmark and City, University of London,” she stated in a past announcement.

She worked at the Standard Media Group-owned media house for three and half years before announcing her exit in July 2022.

“Today, I will anchor my last bulletin at 9:30 am on KTN News, a place I consider home because of the people. A place where my career rose to a level I would never have imagined,”

“I knew from a young age television is for me, but it feels great to achieve everything that I have in the last ten years of broadcast journalism,” added Kerubo.

Her impressive career also saw her work at Mediamax Network Limited as a business reporter before crossing over to CCTV (currently CGTN) as a business writer.
