In what seems to be defined as hard work pays, Muuga FM which had been the Meru giant radio has recaptured its space once again.The space was taken by none other than Meru FM which had started well before being a Muthomi Njuki puppet radio.It seems as if listeners have had enough of propaganda and sugar coated stories from Meru FM and opted to going back to Muuga FM which has maintained professionalism all along their darkest period.
We have in possession of the May KARF ratings which shows Muuga FM is now the most preferred Kimeru radio station. They have beaten their bitter rivals Meru FM by a cool 0.5%. Meru FM employees are in denial of this and are still clinging on the March results where they were the leaders,How Grace Mukiri aka Kiki has managed to dislodge the pastor Frank within a short period at the helm of Muuga FM remains a mystery to all.But here at MKN we blame it on unprofessionalism and political machination at Meru FM. It must be noted that the sacking of Mwambia Nkune who didn’t do sugar coated stories has cost the station a lot being that he covered an area with major listenership of Chuka people.
Meru FM is expected to deteriorate further due to the fact that they have lost more presenters to the upcoming Geetu FM which we expect will maintain professionalism. Already Jonah Gaicima who is the Co-director has warned the two stations that they should never celebrate as their difference is too minimal which is true.He has told them to prepare for the worse once Geetu Radio comes into the market which we know its being launched on 5th August.Geetu FM has poached Muthaura Njogu,Maxwell Kamunuasi, Mbaka Muriuki and the latest being the comical and ever creative Nkunja Murungi WA Mami.
Nkunja has a unique way of telling stories and its expected that he will surely leave the DSM Radio with his intact audience.This is a big plus to Geetu FM and a huge loss to the now struggling Meru FM.Whether Geetu FM will fight for the space with these two dominant stations is no doubt given the calibre of journalists it has so far brought on their side.
As the media wars escalate, we at MKN thank all the investors for this has really created huge employment to the youthful generations out there.We wish you all the best.
