TVC News Anchor Mike Okwoche Quits After 11 Years
By Dipo Olowookere
One of the news anchors of a local broadcasting company, TVC, Mr Mike Okwoche, has exited the organisation after 11 years.
The broadcaster announced his resignation from the Lagos-based firm last week, though he did not disclose his future direction.
Also, the television platform announced the departure of his top employee, who has won several awards, from the company.
“On TVC Breakfast today, TVC News award-winning Senior anchor, Mike Okwoche, officially announces his departure from TVC after 11 years of stewardship,” the broadcast station stated.
Mr Okwoche, during last Friday’s TVC Breakfast Today, said, “I must say this is going to be my last day on TVC after 11 years. I must thank TVC for giving me these 11 years of opportunity on air. Today, being the last day on air at TVC, is really amazing.”
He later announced his exit from the organisation in a post on X, saying, “After 11 years, it was time to bow out from TVC. I can’t describe the outpouring of love for me at my exit; one send forth after the other. This is a family! I will miss my colleagues, but you know, the journey continues.”
Mr Okwoche, apart from being a broadcast journalist, also lectures at the prestigious Nigeria Institute of Journalism (NIJ), Ogba, Lagos. His wife, Mrs Emem Ime Okwoche, is also a pen pusher and the producer of the award-winning Your View on TVC. Mr Okwoche is the latest top employee to leave TVC.
