Bernard Ndong Career
Getting into the media globe, especially if you do not know anyone. You have to knock persistently, make do with repudiations, and soldier on until you break through the sets, which many reporters with a passion for the art do. Bernard’s love for sports started earlier in life. While he was at Lenana, he participated in many sports, including swimming, football, & rugby. Later in Daystar, he performed a bit for the rugby team.
In mid-2007, he was an intern at Kenya Broadcasting Corporation. He attempted to get into the media but was encountered with rejection because he glimpsed like a child. Not one to give up effortlessly, he auditioned at NTV but was disowned yet again. This rejection did not prevent him, and he auditioned at KTN in the first season of ‘The Presenter.’ He had qualified well for this opportunity, but unfortunately, Bernard overcame stage fright, and the presentation went utterly wrong. He messed up & was told by those current, including former Citizen TV anchor Janet Mbugua, that he should test something else.
After finishing at Daystar University, he entered Royal Media Services as a salesperson and worked at Mulembe FM. When Royal Media Services searched for an anchor, Luck knocked on his door. He gave it a go and said to himself that that would be the last time he pushed for a job as an anchor. While posing at a cyber café writing his concession letter, Mike Okinyi contacted him with good news. He was among the individuals shortlisted for the anchoring role. This was how he got into mainstream media and started working as a sports presenter for Citizen TV. The highlight of his profession was when he got the opportunity to travel to Brazil for a month during the mid-2014 world cup.
Apart from anchoring sports news, he is also a social media influencer, a counselor, and translating for corporates.

His father died, and that was a tough time for him as he was not ever in his life; the finality of his end was not an easy thing to deal with.
