Life’s journey is often a tumultuous one, filled with unexpected twists and turns that test our resilience and determination. Njoroge wa Githinji, the charismatic breakfast presenter on Inooro TV, is intimately familiar with this reality.

His story  began with a significant setback – the loss of his job at Mediamax while his wife was four months pregnant. Njoroge had previously worked at K24 for eight months before receiving his pink slip in 2013.

Setting the record straight, he shared in a past interview with Kikuyu Diaspora TV, “It’s good to clear the air that I was sacked. On that day, I knew it was inevitable through my connections. I knew the following day I would be among those who were going home.”

The aftermath of his job loss left him grappling with uncertainty. “I sat at Fig Tree, Ngara, wondering what would be my next move. I was wondering what kind of life lay ahead of me,” he candidly admitted. The emotional toll was immense – he found himself questioning life and even resenting others’ happiness.

However, Njoroge’s journey was far from over. Encouraged by his wife, he embraced the challenge and embarked on a new path. Armed with a Diploma in Public Relations, he decided to return to education, enrolling in a journalism degree at the Kenya Methodist University. Simultaneously, he took up work in a quarry to provide for his growing family.

But fate had more in store. On the very day his wife gave birth, he received a call for an interview with Mwanaspoti at QTV. This twist of fate marked a turning point. “I got the job and got the chance to work alongside Joshua Makori as a co-host. The contract, however, ended that year in December,” he recalled.

Seizing the momentum, he briefly took on sports roles at Ebru TV while pursuing part-time studies. Sports proved to be his forte, and his talents did not go unnoticed.

A friend informed him about an opportunity at Inooro TV. Although he applied for a sports editor position, he was offered the role of a TV host for a brand new show – Inooro TV Breakfast. The transition wasn’t without challenges. Njoroge faced criticism from online trolls, doubting his fit for the show.

Undeterred, he focused on being authentic and creating his unique brand. Over time, his efforts paid off, and he celebrated six years with the station, marking a remarkable journey from uncertainty to success. In addition to his work, Njoroge further enriched his skills by pursuing a master’s in digital journalism.
