Celebrated Journalist Grace Kuria Joins BBC

Celebrated Journalist and media personality Grace Kuria has landed a new job at BBC days after she announced her departure from the China Global Television Network (CGTN).

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, September 23, 2021, Grace broke the good news of her new job at BBC after she shared an image of herself at the media house.

“Not by power, not by might, but by the spirit of the living God, Anything is possible. Bigger than we used to be, we have moved. I say we have moved,” read the tweet.

Her fans and other celebrities joined in with congratulatory messages, wishing her nothing but success as she begins her new chapter with BBC.

“Congratulations and all the best, Grace,” Journalist Oliver Mathenge tweeted.

Grace announced her departure from CGTN on Monday, September 20, barely a year after she joined.

“Today I leave @cgtnafrica a better person than I was months ago, with greater insight on digital media. Forever grateful for the opportunity. Excited about the next phase of my career. God takes all the glory,” she tweeted.

In January , Grace announced her departure from KTN on live television. She had worked at the station for two years since leaving K24 in 2019.

“I take this opportunity to say thank you to God, thank you to my family. Thank you to Standard Group management. Thank you to my colleagues and thank you to you, my viewer, for all the love, criticism, and words of encouragement. 

“What has a beginning has an end and this has been my last broadcast on KTN News and KTN Home. God bless you,” Grace tweeted then.

A source close to her has since indicated that the celebrated journalist may be on her way to join BBC.

Over the years, we have witnessed some of the top local talent get poached by international media houses, leaving us proud of the milestones the industry continues to accomplish locally while making a global mark.

This has been greatly encouraged by the hard work put in by the journalists themselves and media companies in Kenya in ensuring the delivery of quality news to members of the public.
