Exclusive information we have landed on is that media personality JK Kazoora topped the list of managers to take over Urban TV. This came after the station laid off most of its workers including Desire Mugumisa who has been head.
Part of the email that was sent out on Tuesday by the Human Resource manager Vision Group contained details on why many workers will not be needed anymore at the TV station.
The mail also made it clear that in order to bring back the glory days of the station, the management decided to lay off workers which will see them recruit a trusted force that will bring back Urban TV as the top entertainment TV station in Uganda.
Five years back, Vision Group started up Urban TV as a station that will have the cream entertainment news in Uganda. However, as time went on, the station diverted from its initial plan. DJ Bush Baby who started out as the first TV manager called it quits when he realized things weren’t going as planned.
With the news of JK Kazoora taking over, we hope to see a new and vibrant Urban TV back on top. Kazoora has a history of revamping Radio and TV stations. When he sets hands on the once mighty, nothing fails him. Two years back, he was hired to head Uganda Broadcasting Corporation’s Magic HD TV and Radio and a few years later, the stations are currently competing as one of the most watched and listened to
