Former NTV presenter, Larry Madowo is well known for his commitment to work. His fans were so annoyed after he left NTV to BBC. His former show, ‘The Trend’ was so attached to him that it even lost the fame after he left.

His commitment and hardworking spirit has not seized as he gets appointed to attend Columbia Journalism. He shared his happiness through his Instagram account where he wrote; “Some personal news: I’m honoured to be heading to Columbia Journalism this summer. I have no words now, just gratitude.”

In its 44th year, the program is the largest and the most rigorous mid-career journalism fellowship in the world with 400 graduates. The Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Business and Economics at the Columbia Journalism School announced today ten Knight-Bagehot Fellows for the 2019-2020 academic year.
