Former JOY FM sweetheart, Matilda Asante (now Matilda Asante Asiedu), is the new host of TV3?s current affairs program, Agenda. She replaces former host, Francis Ankrah, who was taken off the show last month. Matilda will be expected to offer a new, inspiring direction to the show away from what Ankrah provided. The experienced broadcaster will host her first episode of Agenda on September 4, in what is expected to be the beginning of another journey in mainstream media for her.
She was with Joy FM from 1997 to 2009, and left to take up a senior management role at Access Bank Ghana, as Head, Corporate Communications and Brand Management. She is a fellow of the One World Broadcast Trust UK, and Les Aspin Centre for Governance USA, and the International Women’s Media Forum USA. She holds a Masters Degree in Journalism from the Cardiff University in the United Kingdom.
