Well, insiders at Nation Media Group (NMG) have now revealed the real reason why Dr King’ori exited NTV.

Dr King’ori quit NTV after falling out with superiors following the station’s decision to wind up all its editorial shows as part of a broader restructuring plan.

An insider revealed that the comedian’s exit is directly linked to NTV’s suspension of editorial shows, a move that has sparked speculation about potential job losses within the media house.

NTV is notorious for retrenchment with even most senior journalists not spared as witnessed over the past years when the likes of Mark Masai, Dennis Okari and others were unceremoniously fired.

Dr King’ori fans are now eagerly awaiting updates on his next career move and whether The Wicked Edition will find a new home on a different platform.
