Media personality Joe Ageyo has officially assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief at NTV, where he will report directly to the CEO.
In August 2023, Ageyo celebrated an impressive 25 years in the media industry, reflecting on his journey alongside colleague Alex Chamwada.
He expressed his gratitude for the grace and support that has shaped his career.
Thank you all for the kind messages – and the others too 😀😀. In 25 years you learn many lessons.
Number ONE for me is this: However good you think you are, you need help to succeed.
If you can do it all by yourself, then it is not big enough! And the help you need may not always come from the most powerful or the most knowledgeable person in the room. Many times it is from the most unlikely quarters #My25In25JOE AGEYO
