Larry Madowo was elated yesterday. He achieved what many top journalists in the world can only dream of. For half an hour, he was reporting prime time news both on CNN and BBC. The two media stations are the largest in whole world.
Larry Madowo was senior South American correspondent for BBC before leaving the job earlier this year. CNN offered him a job as African correspondent based in Nairobi bureau. Few months into his job, he moved back to North America where he reports prime time news from CNN headquarters in Atlanta, US.
While reporting news yesterday, BBC was also running a story Larry Madowo made about black history. This means the former NTV news reporter was being watched by millions of people worldwide on the two most subscribed television channels in history. An elated Larry Madowo said that it is highly unlikely he will ever achieve another feat like that. His only wish was that his mother should have been around to see how his son has soared. He knew she would be so proud of him.
