Kiss 100 FM Breakfast Show presenter Adelle Onyango has resigned.
It has been seven years now since the popular presenter joined the Radio Africa Group owned radio station and fell under the then Breakfast Show presenter Caroline Mutoko’s apprenticeship.
“After 7 years on Kiss, I need a new challenge,” she said on social media Saturday after her last show on Friday.
“It’s been a decision that I did not come to lightly. Change is the only constant thing in life, and it is through endings that we begin anew.”
Through her stay at the station, Onyango managed to rise from a typical radio presenter to a power house. Kiss FM Breakfast, which she co-hosted with Shaffie Weru, is among the best performing shows in the urban radio market segment.
Previously, she hosted Drive Show which was just as good. She started her radio career at One FM and made history by becoming the youngest presenter to host a morning show at Kiss FM.
It’s not yet clear where Onyango is headed yet but she’s expected to drop a few hints in her podcast “Legally Clueless” which airs later today, the episode being the first since stepping away.
Onyango’s impressive run comes to an end just days after Capital FM’s Cess Mutungi’s 10-year stretch kaput following Joey Muthengi’s comeback on the radio station.
Muthengi, who also resigned from Citizen TV less than a year ago, replaced Mutungi and Maqbul Mohammed who hosted “The Jam”.
Capital FM has also lost three other presenters in the recent past; Sharon Mundia, Susan Wong and Anita Nderu.
