In a significant restructuring move, Royal Media Services (RMS) has announced changes in its sports department, affecting prominent figure Mike Okinyi.

Okinyi, a seasoned Kenyan sports journalist with a longstanding tenure at RMS, has been demoted from his role as the news sports editor for both Citizen TV and the radio station.

The decision, outlined in a memo dated February 27 by Linus Kaikai, Group Editorial Director and Head of Strategy at RMS, signaled a strategic shift aimed at streamlining operations within the sports division.

Isaac Swila has been appointed as Okinyi’s successor, assuming the position of Head of RMS Sports Centre.

Swila will now oversee the coordination of sports coverage across all platforms under the RMS umbrella.

“To further realize our objectives, it has become necessary to re-organize our operations and I am consequently delighted to announce the following changes,” read the memo in part.

Furthermore, Kaikai announced the promotion of Young Muthomi to the role of Managing Editor of Radio News and Sports. Muthomi’s responsibilities will encompass both editorial and administrative functions within the sports department.

“Sports news across our TV, Radio and Digital platforms shall be served by editors and reporters operating through and out of the RMS Sports Centre,” stated Kaikai.

According to the media house, the platform has been under development for an extended period and has undergone successful experiments.

“After several months of successful experimentation, I am pleased to announce the consolidation of the Group’s sports news across all platforms and the establishment of an all-under-one sports section named the RMS Sports Centre,” stated Kaikai.
