The seasoned anchor added that he would be engaged in other tasks in the interim. "This is the global media landscape as it is, and regrettably, I came out on the short end of this one.
However, I will continue to work in the media and will return to other platforms. He added to Capital FM, "All I have to say is watch this space.
Masai's departure also occurred soon after the station's top management was changed, with the reason given as the global economic downturn and the shifting media landscape, which had an impact on media companies' earnings.
