It’s official! Former Classic 105 radio presenter Nick Odhiambo has found a new ‘home’ at Standard Group’s Radio Maisha.
Following conflicting reports about his next destination, it is now apparent that Nick, who is also a voice-over artist, will be stepping into Jalango’s gigantic shoes.
Nick’s new co-host Alex Mwakideu yesterday introduced him on social media in a snap taken at Radio Maisha offices. The pic also shows Nick spotting a Standard Group job tag, meaning he will be going on air real soon.
Nick joins Radio Maisha after working at Classic 105 for 10 and a half years.
He will have big shoes to fill in if Radio Maisha’s listeners’ reaction to Jalang’o’s exit is anything to go by.
Jalang’o, a comedian and events organizer, together with co-presenter Alex Mwakideu commanded a huge following owing to their incredible chemistry.
Nick will, therefore, have his work cut out for him in trying to reach his predecessor’s heights.
SG had initially approached Kazungu Matano aka Captain Otoyo Sibuor alias Awinja, who co-presents the morning show on Milele FM, to replace Jalang’o on the show but a deal could not be reached.
Jalas is now co-hosting alongside Jeff Koinange at Royal Media Services’ Hot 96.
