Seasoned media personality Victoria Rubadiri has officially been welcomed to CNN as she takes up a new role at the International media house.

Speaking on her new role at CNN, Rubadiri said; 

“I’m extremely excited for the opportunity to work at CNN and to bring my experience and passion to its global audience. Connecting Africa champions the people, projects, and companies revolutionising African business and I’m looking forward to working alongside Eleni and the team to get out on the ground and tell these stories," 

Rubadiri has joined CNN International in a new capacity on the network's long-running multiplatform series Connecting Africa, as well as its newsgathering operation in Nairobi.

The former Citizen TV has joined CNN to present stories about rising and expanding enterprises in Africa, as well as investigate the effects of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement.

Rubadiri joins CNN from Citizen TV, where she was a senior anchor.

She also has extensive experience as a radio presenter both in Kenya and the US, where she studied a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Broadcast Journalism at Temple University in Philadelphia. 

In 2020, Rubadiri was awarded the BBC World News Komla Dumor Award for her exceptional talent in telling African stories.

“Victoria will be a fantastic addition to Connecting Africa bringing a wealth of expertise and storytelling experience from across the continent. Her appointment speaks to CNN’s commitment to telling African stories from an African perspective and our investment in the Connecting Africa franchise,” CNN International SVP and Global Head of Features Content Ellana Lee said of Rubadiri’s hiring.
