Ngozi Alaegbu

A former newscaster with Lagos-based Television Continental (TVC), Ms Ngozi Alaegbu, has joined a rival broadcast outfit, Arise TV, also based in the metropolis.

Ms Alaegbu moved to Arise TV to join her former colleague at TVC, Mr Ndee Iheanacho Amaugo, who has been with the new TV station for some years now.

In 2019, the Ikorodu-based TV girl reportedly resigned from TVC after she was moved from her breakfast show with Mr Mike Okwoche to the afternoon belt and later to the night shift.

Her exit from the Magodo-based media platform caused controversies as it was alleged that she was pushed out by a senior member of staff of the company.

Business Post observed that in the past days, Ms Alaegbu, who is regarded as a core professional and veteran in the broadcast space in Nigeria, has been casting news on Arise TV, owned by media mogul, Mr Nduka Obaigbena, who also owns ThisDay newspaper.

In recent times, some notable faces on TVC have left the organisation to pursue their media careers elsewhere, including Juliet Mafua, Joke Lijadu and Abayomi Adisa (producer of the popular Journalists’ Hangout), who all left to join BBC. Others who have left TVC include Azeezat Olaoluwa, Morayo Afolabi-Brown, amongst others.
