Anne Kiguta, who graduated with a degree in Communications, Electronic Media & Public Relations from Daystar University, started her media career as a presenter/producer at Hope FM in 2003 before joining Capital FM four years later as a reporter, anchor and on-line sub-editor.

In 2009, she moved to KTN as a reporter/anchor. She was promoted to the role of Senior Anchor, Current Affairs Editor in April 2010.

Kiguta pioneered Checkpoint, a political affairs programme, and KTN Sunday Night.

She left KTN 2013 where she has been serving as Group Digital Manager/Senior Anchor. At some point, she was the host of Opinion Count, a current affairs programme.

Kiguta left KTN for Citizen TV.

She worked as an anchor on Citizen TV until October 2018 when she resigned and joined K24 TV.

Kiguta worked as an anchor on K24 TV until November 2020 when she quit.

On November 21, 2020, Anne Kiguta tendered her resignation letter to Mediamax-owned station, K24 TV.

She made the announcement citing fundamental disagreement on the editorial processes and direction the show was being forced to take.

“It is with regret that today I announce that I will not be returning to the program. Owing to a fundamental disagreement on the editorial processes and direction the show was being forced to take, I suspended my services as an independent contractor to the show on 21st November 2020. My decision was guided by the Code of Conduct contained in the Media Council of Kenya Act, which guides all journalists practising in the republic of Kenya. As a result, I can no longer in good conscience continue to be a part of Punchline,” she wrote.

Many expected Kiguta to make an instant comeback in one of the top TV stations, but since then she has kept a low profile, engaging in other forums that empower society.

Right now, she only takes part in moderation and other activities that are in line with her interests, especially with non-governmental bodies such as the United Nations.
