According to reports, the media house wants to revive its editorial output to increase revenue after years of seeing its revenues decline due to a decrease in advertising by the government and major corporates.
Wangethi, who left the media house roughly 10 years ago, has been chosen as the non-executive director and will be playing an advisory role.
NMG has been under a lot of scrutiny following its coverage of the ongoing presidential elections.
Their coverage of the Supreme Court’s decision raised several questions after they released a story headline alluding that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) had been let off the hook when in fact a majority of the Supreme Court judges based their decision on irregularities and illegalities.
Wangethi, who is an appointed member of the Media Complaints Commission (MCC) will have quite a lot on his hands as he tries to help the media house increase its profits.
