Media personality, Larry Madowo is a true definition of hard work pays. The news man has won the 2020 Phillip Greer Award for his Financial Writing at the Columbia University in New York.

This comes after the British Broadcasting Corporation Africa Business Editor, was admitted to Columbia University back in April 2019 as a Knight-Bagehot Fellow in the class of 2019-2020.

‘’I spent months reporting on Jumia’s first year on the NYSE from Lagos, Berlin, Nairobi & New York for my @ColumbiaJourn thesis. My 9,000-word piece just won the 2020 Philip Greer Award for Financial Writing. I’m also co-authoring an MBA case study on it at @Colombia_Biz School .’’ He shared via his twitter account.

His 9,000-word piece on Jumia won him the 2020 Philip Greer Award for Financial Writing. The devoted journalist believes this might not have happened if he had not dug deep and poured over hundreds of pages, visited five countries and recorded hours of interviews for the project.

It should be remembered that he quit his job at NTV in 2018 to pursue greener pastures. 

Larry is a well-known Kenyan journalist and has previously hosted his own radio show, written a weekly newspaper column and fronted many popular TV programmes. He has a vast experience in broadcasting, having worked with various well established local and international media organizations, and has made many appearances previously on the BBC.
