Mark Masai reflects on life after TV



Well-known TV personality Mark Masai has opened up about his personal and professional background, sharing insights about his newsroom experiences and the healing power of narrative in the digital age.

During a thought-provoking talk at the Baraza Creative Series event, Mark shared that quitting his TV career was an emotional as well as a professional awakening.

Recounting the moment he left television, he shared, “My child didn’t know what was happening. He asked me, ‘Daddy, did you lose your job?’ I realized that these young ones don’t always understand the context.”

According to Mark, departing from the traditional newsroom environment allowed him to view life from a different perspective.

“Not being in the newsroom, I got an opportunity to explore new talents. The experience opened my eyes, enabling me to navigate the digital space and discover new opportunities in the corporate world. Now, I find more time to be with my children and family, being more present in their lives.”

Reflecting on his entry into the media industry, Mark acknowledged his fortunate break.

“I was very fortunate; I didn’t have to hustle much after college. I secured an internship on radio and eventually landed on the business desk. Joining media exposed me to more aspects of life.”

Mark’s desire to have a global platform to express his thoughts led him to study social communication.

“I wanted a breakthrough to speak to the world and have them listen to me,” he shared. “When I started my first media job, I was naive, and people told me I used to dress like a news anchor.”

Mark spoke candidly about a critical moment in his journey.

“There was a time when I was going through tough situations despite the fame and money. I had to call myself for a meeting to understand that there’s more to life than just being famous and making money. It’s easy to lose yourself in the journey; it can get crazy, and you might forget who you are.”
