“In the Luo nation and Kenya as a whole, we mark new dawn. From the Royal Media services we bring you the latest news through reporting from our journalists,” the broadcaster stated.
The company’s Managing Director Wachira Waruru previously stated that the company had put in place measures to cater to its burgeoning audience. “RMS will systematically embark on the first phase of product diversification and business consolidation by unveiling four vernacular TV services.
“Having pioneered vernacular radio broadcasting, we are keen to continue providing unrivaled and quality broadcast content to Kenyans in their first languages,” Wachira stated.
The Royal Media Services is home to the most popular television and radio channels. The Media House has two television stations (Citizen TV, InooroTV), fourteen radio stations, twelve of which are vernacular to cater to the diverse cultures in the region, and a Video on Demands platform (Viusasa).
