The media industry has been forced to adjust accordingly following the spread of the dreaded Covid-19 virus in the country with seven people already infected.
Citizen TV announced on Wednesday, March 18, that due to the dire situation of the disease, it is altering its programming in line with demands brought forth by the outbreak.
Through promos of the new programming, the station disclosed that some of the daytime programmes would take a break to allow deeper coverage of the coronavirus menace.
The station also revealed that since schools had been closed indefinitely, it would allocate a sizeable slot of its day hours to children programmes."Citizen Television is joining hands with all Kenyans to fight this pandemic. This season, we are replacing our normal daytime programming with a brand new lineup.
"Every hour, Citizen TV will bring you a special bulletin on coronavirus and public advisories on how to fight the pandemic," promised the promo.
"Because we know our children are now home, we are dedicating the rest of our daytime programming to children. Citizen Television joining hands with all Kenyans" added news anchor Jeff Koinange in the promo.
Some of the programmes taken off from the daytime line-up include Afrosinema, Mambo Mseto and Daybreak.
Daily Nation, on the other hand, announced that it had reduced the price of its digital publication as the country battles the Covid-19 pandemic.
The media house announced that its customers could access the electronic newspaper at a price of Ksh500 per month down from its normal rate of Ksh980.
NMG Newspapers Division Managing Director Francis Munywoki disclosed that subscribers would also receive a free daily newsletter by email as a value-added service.
This, he explained, would be to allow the users to access relevant information in the comfort of their houses following the government's directive to Kenyans to work from home.
“Information at this time is an essential service that should be classified alongside food and healthcare. The e-paper of the Daily Nation will be accessed at a discounted special offer of Sh500 per month,” stated Munywoki.
