According to sources in the know, Mijungu is set to host his own show and also anchor news, similar roles that he played back at NTV.

The former Side Bar host’s debut at Standard Group comes days after the media house reportedly sent home a number of staffers from the TV division comprising KTN and KTN News as well as from the print division.

Some of those affected include KTN Managing Editor Ellen Wanjiru and Standard Sub-editor Anthony Malesi.

Mijungu was among Nation Media Group Journalists who were sent home in July, a period when several media houses laid-off employees in cost-cutting measures amid Covid-19 effects that have left companies struggling to raise revenue.

Other renowned journalists, who were retrenched alongside Mijungu included AM Live show host Debarl Inea, Brenda Wanga (Reporter), Sharon Baranga (Reporter) and Shaban Ulaya (Head of Swahili).
