Award-Winning talk show host and TV reporter, Jeff Koinange has been offered an opportunity to head a new television network about to be launched in London.

The Capital Talk show host, who’s worked formal for CNN would be the highest ever paid journalist in Africa, rivaling salaries of such household names like Christian Amanpour, John Snow and Raggie Omar.

He is said to be in the final stages of signing the new contract and would be heading to South Africa where the new network is building a broadcast bureau.

The headquarters for this new African-owned Bureau is in London, with news centers in Rio De Janeiro (Brazil), Johannesburg (South Africa), Delhi (India), Beijing (China) as well as Bureaus in Nairobi, Lagos, Dakar and New York. The network is owned Nigerian entrepreneur Nduka Obaigbena.

Mediamax, the parent company of K24, is said to be in panic mode following the journalist’s declaration that he would be leaving to join the new Network with capital talk being the only program at K24 TV is watched by many and without it K24 TV would crumble.

There’s no word yet on whether the shareholders of K24 TV were willing to offer a counter offer.
