Local voice for BBC in Kenya

In a BBC first, promotional trails narrated by Kenyan-born BBC presenter and journalist Joseph Warungu have been tailored to reflect the local feel and style of the country.

Joseph introduces listeners to their favourite programmes with his lively but warm presentation style.

He can be heard daily on the BBC’s 93.7 FM in Nairobi, 88.2 FM in Kisumu and 93.9 FM in Mombasa.

Joseph is also Editor of the BBC’s Focus on Africa and Network Africa programmes.

He said: “I am delighted to be the voice that guides people through BBC programmes in Kenya and I believe audiences will appreciate and enjoy the new feel of the stations which capture the vivaciousness and vibrancy of the country.”

Joseph started his career in journalism as a TV reporter and newsreader with the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation before becoming a producer with the Kenyan Television Network.

In 1992 he joined the BBC Swahili service in London, later travelling back to Kenya to take up the position of East African Editor for the BBC African services based in Nairobi.

Joseph returned to London in 2003 when appointed Editor of the BBC’s flagship English for Africa programmes Focus on Africa and Network Africa.
