Bola Ray-led Excellence In Broadcasting (EIB) Network has been hit again with two major resignations, Medifillasgh.com can confirm.
The two top seasoned broadcasters Kofi Okyere Darko (better known as KOD) and Jon Germain tendered in their resignation to part ways with the EIB Network after working with the media house for five years.
We can authoritatively state on record that the two resigned and not sacked by anybody as some media portals are speculating.
The two popular on-air personalities took to their social media pages on May 2, 2020, to officially announce their resignation from the EIB Network.
Announcing his departure from the company, and a “break” from radio altogether after nearly twenty-five years, KOD disclosed that this was an amicable divorce, adding what an “awesome” half of a decade it has been with an “amazing family.”
KOD’s tenure with Starr was shared between anchoring “The Zone,” the station’s mid-morning show, and the Starr Drive. Before that, he was engaged at Live FM, a sister station, and before that, an extensive run with the now defunct Radio Gold.
In a Facebook post sighted by mediafillasgh.com ,KOD who wrote about his resignation said it has been five years working with the EIB family and he is indebted to the Duffour family and Bola Ray for giving him the opportunity of working with the network.
I’m indebted to the Duffour family, my brother & friend Bolaray (since our mid-teens), Von, gorgeous Emaline, Jeffrey De Gea (who walked me through a lot), Miss Nancy Adobea Anane & my fav marketing & sales family…. our daily KOD tales ( Selassie Tettey Kekeli Gloria Hogba)….. and the last year with my old friend, the gorgeous Cookie & DJ Vyrusky on Starr Drive, it’s been an awesome trip.
I want to say thanks to the EiB family for believing my capabilities & the fab times. A break from radio is in order after 24 years right? From Monday, you can catch me at NINETEEN57 off the Oxford Street from 10:am. May God bless us all
Known for his sonorous voice on the mid-morning show, “The Zone” and late show “The Drop-off,” Germain exits after nearly six years with the company. Like KOD, he describes his departure from the Bola Ray-led company as a mutual arrangement.
Germain’s resignation comes around the same time of the exit of colleague KOD.
Germain has yet to announce his plans for the future.
Jon Germain also on his part took to social media to inform his fans about his resignation from the EIB group.
I am happy to announce that after 5 years and 9 months of being with STARR FM & the EIB family, we have decided to mutually part ways,” Germain, who is also a musician, announced.I’d like to thank everyone who worked with me from the Drop off to The Zone..And everyone who tuned in to my shows. All the best.
