“I’m happy to share that I’m starting a new position as Country Manager, Rwanda at CNBC Africa! I am here to support in the strengthening of a platform where the untold stories of young entrepreneurs and innovators from across Africa come alive.
To amplify the voices that speak opportunities for the African youth while simplifying financial reporting on the world’s premier business channel; CNBC Africa,” read the statement in part.
Anangwe resigned from Look UP TV on April 19 after joining the media company in August 2020.
At the station, he managed the operation of the branch and two radio stations, Look UP Radio and Muthingi FM.
In a farewell letter to colleagues, the reporter was optimistic about the channel’s development and said he had done his best.
“In 1 year and 4 months, I had the opportunity to lead a team on a new journey that laid the foundation for Look UP TV’s tremendous success.
“A new assignment beacon and I bow out proud of the team I leave behind. Your only direction is to go – up!” he stated.
Anangwe previously worked at TV47, where he was CEO for over a year after the channel was founded by business tycoon and Mount Kenya University (MKU) founder Professor Simon Gicharu.
From 2015 to 2018, he also worked as a senior anchor and producer at Standard Media Group.
CNBC Africa is one of the continent’s leading business media companies.
