Goal. Ms Aggie Konde promises to steer the television at the top by offering exciting programmes.
NTV Uganda, an entity of the Nation Media Group, yesterday got a new managing director, Ms Aggie Konde.
Ms Konde took over from Mr Joe Munene, who has been at the helm of the television station for four years since 2009, making it the most viewed and broadcast enterprise in the country.
Speaking at the handover ceremony at the station’s Kampala Serena offices yesterday, Ms Konde said she hoped to scale the station to higher levels. “I am happy to join the leading TV brand in the country that has come through the years. I am going to continue positioning ourselves at the top by offering exciting programmes to our viewers. They should not turn off their dials,” she said.
Ms Konde has been a brand and marketing manager at Crown Beverages Limited, the manufacturers of Pepsi. She has vast experience in the media industry although this will be her first assignment in broadcast.
“My role here is managerial and my core job is to place the right people in the right positions. The principles of management are quite the same and I am good at managing people, brands and resources,” said the new managing director.
Mr Munene joins Standard Media that owns Kenya Television Network and Maisha Radio in Kenya. “I am grateful for the time I have been here and I would like to thank all our viewers and advertisers for making us number one,” Mr Munene said.
