The Mediamax Company limited on Wednesday fired over 160 of its staff citing economic hardships.
The management is said to be downsizing and realigning to ensure it remains afloat.
Among those who were shown the door are top editors, Swahili and business news anchors.
The company also laid off the entire Kameme TV newsroom and is said to change the station to a pure entertainment outfit.
Among the sacked top K24 TV Managing editors who have worked for the station for over a decade are the Managing Editor Fred Njiiri, Head of Business Tony Timase and Head of sports Torome Tirike, Swahili Managing Editor Franklin Wambugu and Senior political reporter Anders Ihachi.

Others are the Deputy managing Editor Ali Mtenzi, top K24 Swahili News anchors Mwanaisha Chidzuga and Ahmed Juma Bhalo.
Mediamax limited once killed the careers of top prime time news anchors Belinda Obura, Swahili news anchor Anne Ngugi, Terrianne Chebet among many others.
However, Chidzuga is seem not to be shaken by the move saying she was only working for K24 TV on a part time contract that was to end in November, 2019.
“I am a caterer managing three restaurants within Nairobi and I will fully get back to my business,” she noted.
