The station went on air in January 2022 and has since been playing remixed music in the local dialect.
In addition, RMS is looking for the positions of news presenter at Mulembe FM, correspondent in Tharaka Nithi, Isiolo, Mandera and Marsabit as well as a multimedia graphics designer/video editor.
The media house is also looking to fill the position of a digital reporter/social media officer who will be responsible for generating online news content for the company.
The ideal candidate will manage the company’s online news platforms under the Digital Sub-Editor. He/she will also provide news stories, features and other news related articles to strengthen the Company’s online news platforms.
Interested applicants will be required to submit send their applications and resumes to email@example.com.
“Clearly cite Job REF No. HRD/CD/DRSMO/01/2022. The closing date will be Monday 17th of January 2022. Only
shortlisted candidates will be contacted,” read its job description.
The position comes at a time the digital platform has been stepping up its online content to include viral stories ranging from entertainment to sports to keep up with a vibrant audience.
RMS launched Ramogi TV on Monday, November 29 and a star-studded event was held to celebrate the new milestone. At around 6.30 pm, Kenyans tuned in to catch a glimpse of the new station that will suit mostly the Luo community.
Managing Director Wachira Waruru had initially indicated that the company was setting itself up for a major improvement to satisfy its growing audience nationwide.
“RMS will systematically embark on the first phase of product diversification and business consolidation by unveiling four vernacular TV services.
“Having pioneered vernacular radio broadcasting, we are keen to continue providing unrivalled and quality broadcast content to Kenyans in their first languages,” he stated.
Citizen TV anchor Trevor Ombija was the Master of Ceremony at the launch event and had praised the administration’s commitment to continuing to offer content to Kenyans in local dialects.
