There is a not so funny joke that says, radio presenters are stuck in radio because they do not have the looks for TV…Yeah, it’s a crude joke and truthfully it does not apply to all radio presenters….
There are those presenters we love to listen to, they make radio listening colourful and the thought of them leaving the station is one we do not want to think of. And then there are those who are plain banal and we just want to turn the radio to another station when they come on air.
I found this interesting tweet by a XFM listener
“The rude awakening is not all that without FareedKhimani.” And so many similar tweets pleading with XFM to bring the radio presenter back on the morning show dubbed ‘Rude Awakening’.
You know you have that one presenter who if he/she left that station you would probably move to the station they moved to or have to get used to the new presenter who you will have to agree it will take you a little bit of time to get used to them.
So who are the top urban radio presenters in Kenya right now? Here is our list.
1 .Maina Kageni (Classic105)
2. Munene Nyaga (Easy FM)
3. Mbusii (Jambo Radio)
4. Shaffie Weru (Kiss 100)
5. Caroline Mutoko (Kiss 100)
6. Fareed Khimani (Rumored to return to XFM soon)
7. Kaleyke Mumo (Kiss 100)
8. Sheila Mwanyigha (Easy Fm)
9. Waweru Mburu (Radio Citizen)

An interesting thing to note about Radio Presenters though, if you can talk and have a charm that works on Kenyans, you are ready to go! Take a look at Mbusii and his former co-host Bonoko.
So, which other presenters do you think should have made it to the list and which ones shouldn’t have.
