We could say Mary Luswata is one of the reasons why Urban TV is one of the most watched Television stations in Uganda lately and this is hugely because of her Scoop on Scoop show that airs from Monday to Friday at 5pm with a repeat at 9pm.
Mary redefined showbiz on Ugandan TV by coming up with a strategy of criticizing celebrities that the public think are untouchable. Well the rumor that has been circulating on social media is that the presenter threw in the towel after her show lost viewership but according to our research, Mary is on leave and will be coming back to do what she does best immediately it is over.
According to our snoop from the Jinja road based TV station, Mary Luswata asked for leave and it was granted by the management. “Mary is on a two weeks leave but will be coming back to give you more about the entertainment industry. She traveled to the UK a few days back but will be returning soon. She went to take care of something over there but her fans should just remain calm,” our source told us.
Going by her popularity and presentation, it’s not likely that Mary Luswata can be sacked by Urban TV. It’s not often that her kind of program can attract sponsorship, but she not only managed to get one but two sponsors for a show that lasts only five minutes. Because she’s indispensable, Urban management also decided to offer her a more lucrative deal to join XFM from Galaxy some months back as well as being given the rights to say anything in any language on her show despite Urban being an English station.
