Celebrated radio host Annitah Raey has announced her departure from Hot 96 radio station.
Speaking on Tuesday the 17th of November 2020, Annitah cited toxic bosses as the main reason for her departure. Being a huge advocate for mental health, the radio host maintained she chose her peace over staying at the Royal Media station.
“I resigned last week on Wednesday, November 11,” Raey disclosed.
According to the renown radio presenter, resigning from her job is the best decision she has ever made.
“So I resigned, which is the best decision I have made in my 30 years. Toxic bosses are something I need to talk about.”
Annittah also added that she will not take her personal problems and rant on social media as that is not her character.
“I have never ever ranted about my personal life online. I have never ranted about my work either. I am not about to start today, but I have learned to choose myself above any job because if I died today then someone will replace me tomorrow. I choose my sanity.”
However, Raey has maintained that although she has quit her job, radio will always be the love of her life.
Before Raey joined Hot 96, she worked at Radio Jambo where she hosted the Hot Drive show alongside Patrick Iigunza. However, she, later on, left the show and moved to the Sizzle on Hot, a late-night show.
