Betty Kyallo reveals possible return to TV

Entrepreneur and media personality Betty Kyallo has revealed she might grace our TV screens once again if the right opportunity presents itself.

Speaking during a live YouTube Q&A section with her fans, Betty expressed her love for TV, noting it is what she loves doing most.

Betty quit TV after a disagreement with employer K24 before the station started retrenching journalists. She graced our TVs with people’s favourite show, Upclose with Betty, where she featured media personalities showcasing their daily routines.

When one of her fans got curious about how life after quitting TV was, Betty gave an honest answer admitting, it was hard. She further explained that she was used to getting a salary every end month.

However, things got a little challenging when she reality checked in, and she had to depend on her business. She noted that she quickly had to learn her lessons and adapt to business life so she could fend for her family.

Fortunately, Kyallo struck a gold mine when she re-launched her salon Flair by Betty attracting loads of customers online. She also established her online presence through her social media, mostly Youtube, where she freely interacts with fans.

I was afraid.

Betty also revealed that she has not always been confident in the media industry. Despite many noting that Betty is meant for TV, she acknowledged that she has not always felt brave.

According to her, during her early days, working alongside her TV idols in the same station intimidated her. At the time, the mother of one was working alongside her hero Catherine Kasavauli.

This, according to Betty, frustrated her as she felt incompetent working alongside the celebrated news anchor.


The ever-cheerful media personality also revealed that working with her former colleague Cynthia Nyamai intimidated her.

It is not easy.

Despite betty Kyallo growing to become a household name, she revealed that her journey in the media world has not been easy.

According to her, some of the challenges she faced included shrubbing while on-air and also failing to ask the appropriate questions during an interview.

She further revealed that whenever this would happen, she would reprimand herself while she was reviewing her day while at home.

Betty, however, cautioned her fans against being too hard on themselves. She went on to note that to be successful, you have to encounter challenges and failures along the way.
