Komla Adom, Sammy Yirenkyi resign from Multimedia
Two more persons have said goodbye to Ghana’s biggest private media house, Multimedia Group Limited (MGL).
The two are Joy FM and Joy News’ Komla Adom and Programmes Manager for Asempa FM, Sammy Yirenkyi.
They join several others to have resigned from the media conglomerate within a period of two months.
It is unclear what may have sparked the massive resignations at the Kokomlemle-based media house.
Early this year, Radio and TV personality, Komla Adom was suspended over his refusal to stop wearing fashion rings on set.
The two have not yet disclosed their next move but they leave on the same day that a former employee, Naa Ashorkor revealed she had joined Asaase radio, the latest kid on the block.
In May 2020, the mother of two announced her former employers at the Multimedia Group had terminated her contract.
It was unclear what might have led to the contract termination, but the celebrated actress said she hoped for better opportunities.
Exactly a month after she was shown the exit, theghanareport.com sources within the company revealed seven others had also resigned.
Editor of the online department of Joy FM, Malik Daabu was one of them. Mr. Daabu left early this year to take up a new role as head of Public Relations at the Ghana Maritime Authority.
Until his resignation, he served as Joy FM’s in-house political analyst. He had also been moved to head the investigative desk following the resignation of Manasseh Azure Awuni last year.
The General Manager of the Joy Cluster (radio and TV), Ms. Emma Morrison, has also resigned according to theghanareport.com’s sources.
Affectionately called Ms. Mo, the fine brain bid her colleagues goodbye on her birthday, June 5, 2020. She is set to pursue her private dreams.
She served in various capacities before her departure from the Kokomlele-based media house.
Sports journalist, Benedict Owusu resigned.
On-air personalities including, Emmanuel Aboagye Wiafe, Norvan Acquah Hayford, Philip Nanfuri, all from Joy Business, have also left the Multimedia Group this year.
