BBC’s Business Editor for Africa Larry Madowo has announced his temporary exit from the British media company after approximately one year of service.
The celebrated journalist took to Twitter where he made the announcement citing that he was remaining with only three weeks left.
“Hard to believe that I’ve got just 3 weeks left with the BBC before taking a break to be a full-time student again at @Columbia. New York City, I’ll see you soon but for now, Nairobi, be nice to me,” Larry Madowo wrote on Twitter.
Larry Madowo will be taking a temporary break to be a full-time student at Columbia University in New York.
The Daystar graduate was among the 10 lucky journalists who were chosen across the world to join The Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Business and Economics at the Columbia Journalism School.
A few weeks ago Larry Madowo expressed his gratitude for being chosen as a beneficiary of the prestigious program.
“Some personal news: I’m honoured to have been accepted into Columbia University. I have no words now, just gratitude,” Larry Madowo wrote on Facebook.
Larry Madowo was working as a news anchor and host of The Trend at NTV before he quit to join BBC.
