Nairobi News understands Kwamboka has been spotted at Kiss FM’s Lion Place offices in the past few days, ostensibly to tie up loose ends on an impending contract ahead of joining the renowned media house.

Sources say she might be replacing media personality Kamene Goro who is said to be leaving Kiss FM as the breakfast host.

She will be a great fit for the Kiss FM brand that is seeking to attract the Gen z target audience.

Speaking to Nairobi News via phone, Kamene was hesitant to talk about the imminent departure from the media house she has called home for the last three years.

“I don’t have anything to say, but how is I leaving news?” Kamene asked.
