Sultry news anchor Michelle Morgan has quit K24 to host an extreme sports show.

Michelle posted her resignation on social media on Thursday morning explaining what informed her decision to quit the newsroom.

Michelle, who has previously hosted Citizen Business news, said she was resigning from her current position to do what she loves.

“It was a very amicable separation, but I just reached a point in my life where I think it is important to be true to myself. Being a news anchor has been my job for the past few years but during that time I cultivated a love and a passion for the outdoors activities,” she said in her video.


“I’m really excited to announce that I’m gonna be the host of this amazing show called XOA (Xtreme Outdoors Africa),” she added.

A representative of Xtreme Outdoors Africa confirmed to Nairobi News that indeed Michelle was now their presenter.

On her blog and Facebook page, Michelle describes herself as someone who loves to travel, exploration and adrenaline.

“I want to share my wild and free escapades with you. Whether I’m on my motorbike on an adrenaline fuelled expedition, traveling seeking new encounters and inspiration, or capturing the art of life through photography and film,” she writes.

XOA is a television series that follows our thrill-seeking presenters on exhilarating adventures across Africa.
