I live my dream by telling stories that make a difference: Ann Nyathira, meet the new face of TUKO.co.ke Kenya News
TUKO TV has successfully added new faces to its team including Ann Nyathira (Human Interest Producer), Lily Aiysha Mwangi (Entertainment Producer), Kelvin Mwenda (Video Editor), Daniel Munene (Video Editor) and Shiro Mbugua ( camera).
Human interest is at the heart of TUKO.co.ke’s content alongside entertainment and news.
Nyathira, who is now in charge of the segment, introduced herself to the audience in a captivating interview in which her passion, determination and compassionate voice cannot go unnoticed.
She is living her dream and wants to see many people live their dreams by letting them tell their stories through her and here is what she had to say:
Who is Ann Nyathira?
I am Ann Nyathira, a Kenyan professional journalist. I have a degree in Audiovisual Journalism from the famous Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC).

I am also a Mobile Video Journalism Fellow at the Aga Khan University Graduate School of Mass Communication. Prior to joining TUKO.co.ke, I worked with People Daily newspaper as a feature film writer with a penchant for human interest reporting for two years until 2019.
How TUKO.co.ke came to be
When I was working as a journalist, I submitted an application letter for the Mobile Video Journalism Fellowship with Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media Studies and was among the 15 applicants who were awarded the scholarship.
A perfect coincidence saw me tie up to TUKO.co.ke as a mobile video reporter as per the scholarship requirements.
The internship was really intense, I got to work on under-reported stories that would never find a place in the mainstream media. Now I believe the mission was only preparing me for my next exciting mission.

What I love most about TUKO.co.ke is the opportunity to let people tell their stories through us, to impact, to inspire and to inform.

I then do a lot of research on the topics and people that I’m going to engage with.
As a human interest producer, like all journalists, you should always have your ears and years in the field in order to conduct an informed interview that captures the most important aspects of every conversation.
All about creating impact
Ann says good stories make impact and that’s what she’s here to offer.
Create impact and even more impact. This has always been my mantra and my motivation.
The âExplicatorâ is one of his models
In Kenya, Nyathira admires news anchor Yvonne Okwara, who is popular for her explanations of the news broadcast.
Yes! Yvonne Okwara and Oprah Winfrey are women I admire and have learned a lot from them which makes me a better professional and a better person.

TUKO audiences should expect stories that will not only inspire them, but also give them a different perspective on our society.
