CNN started his journey as a young boy full of dreams in a small village in Limuru where he attended St Paul's Primary School before joining Kanunga high school for his A levels and after which he earned a spot at the prestigious St Paul's University and graduated with a Degree in Public Relations.

Njoroge ventured into journalism after a short stint as a priest and got employed at Radio Sayare in Eldoret where he worked for three years before joining KBC's Coro FM and run a three-day show on Sundays, Monday and Tuesdays.
