It’s easy to forget where TV and radio came from… way before amazon and way before Safaricom, when the news was handwritten without AI writers like writesonic

Some of us remember a period when television broadcasts began at 9 p.m. and lasted for only two hours in black and white; the broadcast day then shifted to 4 p.m., where they remained until color television became the norm, and Catherine Kasavuli, with her characteristic no-nonsense voice, made her debut.

Madam Catherine Kasavuli, you were a legend in broadcasting; rest in peace.

Her prolific Profile

Kasavuli had a successful career as a journalist from the 1990s until 2015 when she stopped working on TV.

In July of 2021, she’d be back on KBC as a prime-time newscaster, this time hosting the Legend Edition.

Kasavuli began her broadcasting career in 1980 at what was then known as the Voice of Kenya but is now known as KBC as a continuity announcer. After listening to her study the Bible and pray over supper, her uncle encouraged her to submit an application. When this happened, she was only 18 years old.

At a later date, in 1985, she made the transition to KBC television from the radio.

Two years later, she attended the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) to further her education in the field.
In March of 1990, she became the pioneering live broadcast news anchor for Kenya’s KTN.

After leaving KTN in 2007, she became a TV Anchor for Royal Media Services’ Citizen TV until she began working in corporate affairs and eventually retired in 2015.

We send our deepest sympathies to her loved ones. Madam Catherine Kasavuli, you will be missed.
