NBS TV Boss applauds UCU Alumni

By Ivan Tsebeni

The Next-Media Services Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Kin Kariisa, says that past experience with Uganda Christian University (UCU) alumni that possess quality skills and “impeccable” character is paving the way for expanded collaboration with UCU’s journalism and communications programs.

“Next-Media Services currently employs over 40 UCU alumni, some of whom include Joseph Sabiiti, Irene Namajja, Doreen Katusiime Mweheire,” he said.

Kariisa made the remarks on 20th May, 2021, during the Kampala-based, multi-media group’s visit to UCU. The group’s Mukono campus visit came after the university’s Vice-Chancellor Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi, together with a team from the Communication and Marketing office, paid an exploratory visit to Next Media Services in April 2021.

Addressing a group of UCU staff, Next Media representatives and some students, Prof. Mushengyezi said that Next-Media Services has been a good partner in the past with hopes for expanded collaboration.

The purpose of the May 20 visit was to discuss the possibility of guest lectures and publicity assistance by Next-Media as well as internships with the group for UCU journalism and communications students.

In addition to collaboration discussion, UCU journalism students interacted last Thursday with Next-Media-affiliated NBS TV’s top news staff Mildred Tuhaise, Joseph Sabiiti, Irene Namajja, and Dora Atwonjeire. The visit ended with a friendly football game which ended 3:0 in favour of UCU.

Another focus of the May 20 visit was a discussion about the shared concern with mental health among youth, including students at UCU.
