This appointment marks a pivotal moment in Joe Kigozi's illustrious career, further solidifying his position as a critical figure in Uganda's media landscape.
With the announcement of Joe Kigozi as the Vice Chairperson of the National Association of Broadcasters, he steps into the shoes of his predecessor, Innocent Nahabwe, who had deputised Next Media's Kin Kariisa for the last two terms. Kin Kariisa, in turn, has assumed the role of Chairperson of the Advisory Trustees Board for the National Association of Broadcasters.
Joe Kigozi boasts over 15 years of experience in the media industry, specializing in brand development and building. His journey with Next Media, where he serves as Group Deputy CEO and General Manager of NBS Sport, Uganda's premier 24-hour sports channel, has been instrumental in shaping the country's media landscape.
A dynamic professional, Joe Kigozi briefly ventured outside Next Media to serve as the Chief Executive Officer of Bulange, Buganda Broadcasting Services (BBS Terefayina), where he built a formidable brand. Under his guidance, BBS Terefayina became one of the top 5 most-watched channels in less than two years, showcasing Joe's ability to create and nurture successful media entities.
Beyond his contributions to the media landscape, Joe Kigozi has held significant roles in various organisations, including serving as the Communications Director at Pearls Porto Consultancy. His influence extends to several boards, including Next Media, Reach A Hand, and the Architects Registration Board.
The National Association of Broadcasters, Uganda, plays a crucial role as the voice for the nation's radio and television broadcasters. As a premier association, NAB advocates for the interests of its members within the government, the business sector, and the country at large.
In his new role, Joe Kigozi is poised to bring his wealth of experience and strategic insight further to enhance the objectives of the National Association of Broadcasters, solidifying his status as a trailblazer in Ugandan media.
