Nation Media Group last week made changes in its two flagship companies in Uganda, naming Anthony Craig Glencross as the overall Group Managing Director, heading both the Daily Monitor and NTV.
AS Group MD for Uganda, Glencross oversees the entire NMG platform in the country, while NTV’s outgoing Managing Director Johnson Omollo was named as a General Manager in charge of television.
Both companies began restructuring last week with a couple of senior editors at Monitor being shown the exit. And now we have learnt that last week’s sword was so pointed that it stretched from Namuwongo to Serena Hotel, the home of NTV.
According to the news on our desk, the biggest victim at NTV was NTV the Beat, where almost the entire team of the show was fired.
The show’s producer Shawn Segawa has reportedly been shown the exit along with presenter Douglas Lwanga.
Sources said Lwanga is to be replaced by former T-Nation presenters Sheilah Gashumba and Chrystal Panda.
The gap left by Ssegawa has been already filled with a new producer, Isaac Kugonza.
